Fire Protection, Fire Prevention, and Fire Suppression. What’s the Difference?

Protection, prevention, and suppression, are terms that are often used interchangeably when discussing how to safeguard against fires. However, there are key differences between these concepts. It is best to think about how these different systems work together to keep people and buildings safe from fires.

Fire Protection
A fire protection system is meant to protect the people in a building, as well as minimize the damage that a fire can cause to a building. Generally, fire protection systems are designed to provide the most time for a safe evacuation while also minimizing the potential costs associated with repairing a building in the event that a fire occurs.

There are active and passive measures that can be taken to implement a strong fire protection protocol. Active measures are meant to fight fires. Active systems include things like fire alarms, sprinklers, and fire extinguishers. Passive systems are meant to prevent the spread of a fire through a building. Passive measures typically include structural engineering that is known to prevent the passage of flames or smoke if a fire were to occur. Passive safety measures not only prevent flames or smoke from spreading, they also protect the structural integrity of the building if a fire were to occur. Compartmentation is a term that refers to a passive fire mitigation strategy. Fire safety regulations call for a building to be compartmentalized, or broken down into manageable areas. This will help stop smoke from passing through areas and stop fire from spreading through the building quickly. To achieve compartmentation, things like fire doors, cavity barriers, and firewalls are installed. Fire-stopping solutions such as fire protection boards that absorb heat rather than conduct it, fire seals, and fire-resistant insulation are other examples of passive fire protection measures. Fire protection measures don’t stop a fire from occurring, however, they reduce fire damage and provide as much time as possible for safe evacuation.

Fire Prevention
The primary difference between fire prevention and fire protection is that fire prevention are measures that occur to prevent fires. Fire prevention measures do not apply once a fire has started. “Fire load” is terminology that is used by fire safety specialists when assessing hazards and determining the severity of a fire if it were to occur. Fire prevention experts are always trying to reduce fire load. Some common prevention measures are things that often make common sense. These would include things like safely storing flammable materials, eliminating points of ignition, and having employees complete regular fire safety training.

The best way to know the specific fire prevention measures that are necessary for your building is to hire Raleigh Fire Protection Services to complete your regular fire safety inspections and fire risk assessments. Contact us today to schedule your free consultation.

Fire Suppression
The primary purpose of a fire suppression system is to stop a fire as quickly as possible. You can consider fire suppression systems as the final safety measure that is implemented to protect a building and its occupants. Fire suppression systems are intended to detect signs of a fire and activate immediately.

Types of fire suppression systems:

Water-Based Fire Suppression Systems
The fire suppression system that most people think of is sprinklers. These systems house water in a reservoir or they’re connected to a water supply. The advantage of this system is that it is relatively inexpensive compared to the alternative options. However, a key disadvantage is that the amount of water it emits will damage electrical equipment and possibly your structure.

Wet Chemical Fire Suppression Systems
Wet chemical suppression systems contain chemicals in the form of aerosols such as potassium acetate, potassium bicarbonate, and potassium citrate. These systems are effective in extinguishing common kitchen fires that result from grease. Flames are tampered when the wet chemicals are dispensed, as they produce a foam to cool grease, which prevents the fires from growing. We install wet chemical systems most frequently in commercial kitchens where most Authority Having Jurisdictions (AHJ) require them. Wet chemical suppression systems are largely considered in the industry as the most effective defense against kitchen fires.

Dry Chemical Fire Suppression Systems
These are most commonly used in buildings where water or wet chemicals cannot be used safely. Examples include buildings that contain live electrical equipment or hazardous materials, furnace rooms, and mechanical rooms. These systems work by dispensing dry chemicals like potassium bicarbonate, sodium bicarbonate, or mono ammonium phosphate to extinguish fires and protect flammable materials. Dry chemical fire suppression systems are very effective and extinguish fires quickly.

Chemical suppression systems are generally more expensive than some of the alternatives because special pipework and fittings are necessary for it to function properly.

Clean Agent Fire Suppression Systems
Besides its effectiveness, the best part about a clean agent system is that it requires no cleanup after it has to be used. This is because clean agent fire suppression systems are discharged in gas form and leave behind no residue. When a fire is detected, the agent is applied to the fire to lower the temperature and put the fire out. Clean agent systems are ideal for museums, computer rooms, machinery, data storage centers, art exhibits, and so on. The most common clean agent fire suppression systems are 3M Novak 1230, FM-200, CO2, argonite, and non-toxic inergen. While these systems are all considered clean agent fire suppression systems, they have differences from components and application to pricing.
