2 Running Head: Part 2: Scenario-Based Case Study Section I The industrial field have seen a much-needed expansion in fire protection technologies over the last two decades. It is of great significance to have to have a quality fire protection system installed in any building whether commercial or residential. Analyzing the fire at City of Washington Distribution Center, many areas of the facility construction and design are in dire need of improvement, most notably the fire protection and suppression system In my perspective the City of Washington Distribution Warehouse was at fault in many ways, as it relates to the previous fire protection, detection, and suppression systems. The standard was unacceptable as there were several deficiencies with the building fire suppression and detection systems. Data were said to be present recommending that warehouse needed to ground as well as bond the fire pump. These recommendations were never done along with recommendations to implement a safety program to educate workers on how to react in case of a fire. The most unfavorable onus of all the shortcomings at the building was the power outage which reportedly transpired for days. For the rebuilding phase of the warehouse, plans need to be made to eliminate prior mishap, design around the fire protection, detection, and suppression systems are a major concern. It would be most beneficial to have a both an automatic fire protection, detection, and alarm system and a fire suppression system. “Fire protection experts generally agree that automatic sprinklers represent one of the single, most significant aspects of a fire management program. Properly designed, installed, and maintained, these systems can overcome deficiencies in risk management, building construction, and emergency response” (Kelts,2019).
3 Running Head: Part 2: Scenario-Based Case Study Not having a worker to actually call the fire department would ease some hassle and saves time in what would have been a chaotic moment. To be safe I would also recommend manual systems throughout the Wearhouse as well. Assigning trained personnel to operate manual firefighting systems would also be beneficial.
