Fire Response Priorities
Response to any fire scenario, regardless of whether you are using a fire sprinkler system or any other form of response, should have these three basic priorities listed by importance:
Life Safety and Personal Protection. The most critical thing to achieve in any fire incident is the protection of life and prevention of injury. Property, product, processes and material can be replaced and rebuilt, but human lives cannot be replaced. If nothing else is accomplished in a fire other than the total safety of all persons involved, the first and most important fire response goal has been accomplished.
Incident Stabilization. Once the first priority has been achieved, the second goal is to stabilize the incident, or to keep it from growing or getting worse. By stabilizing the incident and not allowing it to change, grow in intensity or grow in size, the incident cannot threaten more lives and property, even if the area or property involved becomes a total loss.>
Property conservation. Only after priorities 1 and 2 have been achieved, the focus may then turn to extinguishing the fire quickly with the least amount of damage to the property involved.
The job of fire suppression equipment like portable extinguishers and pre-engineered systems in response to a fire incident has the priorities listed above. Together with a fire plan, alarm notification, evacuation, quick and safe response, portable extinguishers and pre-engineered systems may be key factors in the outcome of a fire incident.
