    Introduction While the emphasis in this chapter is on physical safeguards, it  is important to emphasize the human aspect  of fire safety and  emergency protection. Disastrous losses often occur not from the failure or absence of  physical safeguards, but from human error-the failure to close a  fire door, to maintain existing protection systems in good  working condition, to inspect or to report hazards, and, at the  management level, to ensure through continuous employee  education and training that the organization remains prepared at  any time for any emergency.

    Fire Prevention and Protection Any defense against fire must be viewed in two parts: fire  prevention and fire protection.  Fire Prevention : Embodies the control of the sources of heat and  the elimination or isolation of the more obviously dangerous fuels.
