Fire Protection Engineering

Protecting your facility against fire and explosion risks

Why is Fire Protection Engineering Important for my Business?

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), fire departments in the United States responded to almost 38,000 fires at industrial and manufacturing properties each year between 2011 and 2015. These fires resulted in 16 civilian deaths and $1.2 in billion USD in direct property damage.

 

As such, organizations have a strong need to adeptly manage their exposure to fire and explosion risks, such as:

  • Increased regulatory activity
  • Higher levels of public scrutiny
  • Greater demands for aggressive environmental liability management
  • Stricter insurance requirements
  • New technological advances for processing and warehousing
