DESCRIPTION

Executive Directory of Fire Protection allows you to target individuals that operate and manage government establishments engaged in fire fighting and fire protection activities. Fire protection personnel include firefighters, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, rescue workers, ambulance personnel, or hazardous materials workers who: are trained in fire suppression; have the legal authority and responsibility to engage in fire suppression; are employed by a fire department of a municipality, county, fire district, or State; and are engaged in the prevention, control and extinguishment of fires or response to emergency situations where life, property, or the environment is at risk.

 

 

Fire departments have two basic fire-related functions: prevention and suppression. Fire prevention activities aim to keep fires from starting. Fire suppression activities seek to put out fires once they have started, to rescue individuals, and to protect property from the paths of fires. Fire protection is the study and practice of mitigating the unwanted effects of fires. It involves the study of the behavior, compartmentalization, suppression and investigation of fire and its related emergencies, as well as the research and development, production, testing and application of mitigating systems. In structures, be they land-based, offshore or even ships, the owners and operators are responsible to maintain their facilities in accordance with a design-basis that is rooted in laws, including the local building code and fire code, which are enforced by the Authority Having Jurisdiction. Buildings must be constructed in accordance with the version of the building code that is in effect when an application for a building permit is made. Building inspectors check on compliance of a building under construction with the building code. Once construction is complete, a building must be maintained in accordance with the current fire code, which is enforced by the fire prevention officers of a local fire department. In the event of fire emergencies, firefighters, fire investigators, and other fire prevention personnel called to mitigate, investigate and learn from the damage of a fire. Lessons learned from fires are applied to the authoring of both building codes and fire codes.

 

 

More and more, fire departments operate emergency medical services and air crash services that relate only tangentially to the problems of fires in structures. In most urban areas firefighting service is primarily the responsibility of the local government. Variations in procedures reflect regional differences in building construction and environmental conditions. Because fire fighting is such a specialized occupation, many people who begin their careers as firefighters with a particular department remain with that department for the duration of their career. Fire service is overwhelmingly male and traditionally blue-collar. Entry to most career fire departments is based on competitive testing, with rigorous tests for physical strength and agility. Promotion is often based on a combination of competitive testing and seniority. Paid departments experience little turnover. Many departments are beginning to require some college education for promotion. A major and legitimate concern of firefighters is safety. The rate of deaths in the line of duty is much higher for firefighters than for police officers or other city employees. They report to traffic accidents, burning buildings, and any 911 dispatched phone calls. Their set of skills allows them to protect and save the general public from any type of fire. They teach the public about fire safety which includes how to escape a burning home and how to properly install fire alarms.

Individuals in the Fire Protection industry are trained and educated in firefighting. They have experience controlling and extinguishing fires as a member of an organized military, industrial, volunteer, or governmental fire department or brigade; rescue operations; detection, reduction, or elimination of potential fire hazards; operation of fire communications equipment; controlling hazardous materials incidents and/or developing, implementing, or providing training in fire protection and prevention. Some complete a 2-year course of study in an accredited college or university in Fire Training, Fire Science, or other related fields of study, and a 4-year course of study in an accredited college or university with major study in Fire Science, Fire Training, or other related fields of study.
