Poole Fire Protection understands that just knowing the codes and standards is not good enough. By focusing on the intent of the regulations, the firm's expert staff provides clients with a value-added approach to fire protection and life safety challenges.Poole Fire Protection Services

Master Fire Protection Planning and Development
A comprehensive Master Fire Protection Plan for a site or facility addresses all aspects of fire protection including:

 Fire protection water supply (fire hydrants, fire pumps, water storage tanks)
 Exposure protection between structures
 Fire department access
 Site-wide fire alarm
 Mass notification

Code Footprint Plans
A Code Footprint summarizes a facility's building and fire code features in a dynamic report supported by explanatory diagrams and comments. The report conveys technical information in a pictorial "snapshot," outlining key elements of building and fire code requirements. The Code Footprint simply, but fully, outlines the facility's life safety and fire protection features.

This relatively new concept, which Poole Fire Protection helped to create, is increasingly being required by building code authorities around the country. When creating a Code Footprint plan, Poole Fire Protection provides documentation that exceeds the minimum criteria required by most state and national fire safety authorities.

Poole Fire Protection ServicesFire Protection Engineering Code Analysis
A Fire Protection Engineering Code Analysis addresses the codes and standards related to the specific requirements of the project and includes alternative approaches to achieve compliance and which can entail:

 Prescriptive and performance-based code reviews to determine type
of construction, height and area limitations, building separation or
exposure protection

 Smoke compartmentation and smoke barriers to determine how those
elements conform to required codes and standards

Poole Fire Protection's qualified staff know the model codes, including the International Family of Codes. This enables Poole Fire Protection to provide practical, cost-effective solutions to complex challenges. Balancing prescriptive and performance-based code criteria, Poole Fire Protection specializes in developing engineering concepts that are practical for the client and acceptable to building and fire code officials.
