The Singapore Fire Code requires that buildings be designed with appropriate fire protection system. One of the key systems is the building’s fire-fighting system. These fire-fighting systems are probably the last line of defence when other early detection and suppression system fail to control the fire in its incipient stage. When the in-house company emergency response team (CERT) is activated to provide intervention, these fire-fighting systems are crucial to be functioning to enable the response personnel, including the SCDF personnel, to carry out fire-fighting operation. This workshop will cover the various types of fire-fighting systems and their corresponding inspection, testing and maintenance requirements.
