Description

Going well "beyond" the usual code enforcement and plan review approach to fire prevention, this exceptionally comprehensive and cutting-edge introduction to fire and life safety prevention takes into account the "broad range" of prevention activities that must be coordinated for a "modern" approach to prevention, as well as the scope of the "issues" (legal and other) involved in their administration. It shows readers how to utilize "all" the tools available through public education, how to contribute to their planning efforts by incorporating investigation activities into a coordinated strategy for loss control, and how to organize their prevention efforts in the most effective manner. Several case studies and a host of activities give readers first-hand insights and experiences into applying concepts and strategies in the real world. The Comprehensive Approach to Prevention. Planning for Fire and Life Safety Prevention. The Plan Review Process: Engineering Elements in Prevention. Code Enforcement/Development: Developing Quality Codes and Making Sure They Are Enforced. Public Fire and Life Safety Education Programs. Fire Investigation. Staffing, Training and Funding Options for Prevention Programs. Evaluating Prevention Programs. Fire Marshal, Fire Chief, Inspector, Investigator, Public Education Specialist, Plan Reviewer.show more
