Prevention and Control of Fires
Fire protection can be either passive or active. Passive fire protection is designed to prevent failure of equipment or structures by protecting them from the heat of a fire. Active fire protection is designed to limit the spread and minimise the effect of a fire. It may use water, carbon dioxide or other gaseous extinguishing systems.
