AFD Emergency Prevention engineers review site plans, building plans, and fire protections system plans associated with new construction and/or renovations.
Fire Protection Engineering
AFD's Fire Protection engineers are primarily responsible for fire safety features in the design of buildings, including the design of the overall site, and new and renovated buildings. Features include fire access roads, fire hydrant placement, fire sprinklers, smoke alarms, fire alarm systems, fire pumps, smoke control and ventilation, egress systems, and other special extinguishing systems. Fire protection systems and equipment generally are required to comply with the standards of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
