Throughout the course, we have covered the fire protection and life safety systems that may be found in buildings. These systems are designed for occupant safety, firefighter safety, and property protection. For the final assignment of the course, you will be required to complete a research paper covering at least five different fire protection systems. For the research paper, you should include the following:
At least five different fire protection systems. These may include fire alarm and connection systems, smoke management systems, fire suppression systems, special extinguishing systems, standpipes systems, and fire pumps, etc.
A detailed description is to be provided for each system selected.
A detailed analysis based on your search: For example, if you describe the automatic fire sprinkler system, details should be included on area of coverage, ratings of sprinkler heads, location of the fire department connection, location of the sprinkler riser, and confirmation on the type of sprinkler system, etc.
Each fire protection system should include how it benefits occupant and firefighter safety (tactical advantages).
Your Research Paper must:
Be at least 6 pages.
Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, and the university name.
Include a reference page. Use at least four scholarly sources (to include your textbook) in order to write a professional level analysis. All sources must be properly referenced both in-text and on the Reference Page. Make sure to use APA format.
