The science of fire safety is a set of practices designed to reduce and prevent fire damage and destruction. These experts are consulted during the planning phase of the construction of a building, as well as for their expertise in implementing for safety techniques in existing structures.
Our fire safety science experts are specialists whose work includes the development of fire safety engineering methods; analysis of fire resistance; flammability testing, flammability codes and standards, and the testing of fire toxicity, corrosivity, ignitability; the review of fire science applications to fire and explosion investigation, and computer fire modeling. They also develop fire test apparatuses and instrumentation, design computer methods for handling of fire test data, conduct full-scale engineering performance testing, and examine performance-based building codes.
Fire safety is frequently incorporated in to the local building code, and fire safety experts are called upon to assist with maintaining a facility in compliance with the provisions of the fire code. This can, for example, include:
- Adhering to a building’s maximum occupancy;
- Fire extinguishers placement;
- Safeguarding flammable materials to specific parts of the facility.
- Maintaining fire alarms;
- Conducting regularly-scheduled fire drills.
