Lawrence R. Eichner, PE
Fire service operations often take place in stressful, hazardous, time-sensitive environments. The design of on-site and building fire service features, such as access roads, fire hydrants, signage, and fire alarm/protection systems can greatly influence fire suppression operations. All building design professionals should have an in-depth understanding of the needs of the fire service and specific design details that will help streamline and support fire service operations. This online course explains how fire service operations can be impacted by various features, and provides recommended best practices and design considerations that can facilitate safe and timely operations. The course materials are based entirely on Fire Service Features of Buildings and Fire Protection Systems, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, OSHA 3256-07N 2006.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
