Fire Protection Structure and Systems. Analysis of Fire Alarm and Detection Systems. There are countless variations of fire alarm and detection systems throughout communities and jurisdictions. For this assignment, pick an occupancy with a fire alarm and detection system in your jurisdiction or community. Therefore, provide a detailed analysis of each component of the system.
Identify the occupancy you selected. Explain the system’s function, which includes the fire alarm panel, the different kinds of detectors that are use-d (heat, smoke, UV, IR, etc.), and the kinds of notification devices use-d (visual, audible devices, etc,). Discuss how the system interconnects with other components (such as smoke barriers, fire doors, elevators, and/or smoke control systems) to provide complete protection. Lastly, include at least two pictures of the components to support your analysis.
Your paper should be at least three pages in length (which does not count the pictures). Your paper should include a minimum of two resources. Adhere to APA Style when constructing this assignment, including a title page and in-text citations and references for all sources that are used.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporate-d in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
