OBSERVANCE OF FIRE SAFETY IN TRINITY UNIVERSITY OS ASIA
Fire situations pose one of the most serious problems in an industrial establishment with the potential loss of lives & property as well as damage to the environment. Careful preplanning, implementation of well-planned & engineered fire prevention measures and proper response by trained personnel can minimize the risk & damage caused by fire. However, in spite of several advances made in fire detection and fire fighting, firecontinues to be highly unpredictable and hence the best course of action is to put the maximum emphasis on fire prevention. The consequences of fire can be more severe in a nuclear installation due to the added risk of release of radioactivity. Hence there is a need for regulating the fire protection system in nuclear facilities and strengthen the fire safety aspects to ensure nuclear and radiological safety. Fire safety aspects of nuclear facilities include fire prevention, detection & protection systems along with other considerations such as personnel safety, environmental safety and property protection. Fire safety system aims to achieve a defence-in-depth concept and provides direction to select the optimum combination of the three levels –prevention, detection & suppression and mitigation to ensure safety.
BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY:
The problem Investigated was : how can a fire safety program for TUA school buildings address the needs of the students, building management and employees ,and fire department of Quezon City companies which respond to those buildings in order to improve fire safety for all? The purpose of this applied research paper was to propose a template for developing fire safety program for buildings that recognizes and addresses the different perspectives in order to improve the effectiveness of such a fire safety program. The project will conclude by putting forward suggestions for improving the QCFD fire safety...
