Firefighters May have PBD buildings in your district You may review a PBD plan 2. Investigators Failure analysis Did something change in the building that voided the PBD? 3. Engineers Conduct PBD Review of PBD Goals: Life safety Ensure all occupants have 20 minutes to safety evacuate the building Property Protection/ Life Safety Ensure building will stay standing (passive fire protection) Fire protection implements 1. Fire detection 2. Fire control (assumed to not suppress fire) 3. Fire containment 4. Smoke control Fire detection: manual detection, point source detection, air sampling, beam detection Fire control: sprinkler system, wet chemical systems (Kitchen), and gaseous fire suppression Fire containment: fire walls, fire doors Smoke control: natural ventilation, mechanical ventilation, smoke dampers, draft curtains Methodology: Hand calculations (tends to be conservative) Computer fire models CFAST Fire dynamic simulator (FDS) Human Evacuation -Required safe evacuation time (RSET)
