Question 1

Instructions

In the image provided,
describe the initiating device. Discuss any criteria about these devices being
accessible, unobstructed, and visible. Does this initiating device require a
manual or automatic means of activating the fire alarm and initiating signal?
Why, or why not? Have you ever come across an initiating device that did not
meet these criteria? Explain.

Question 2

Instructions

Part 3: Scenario-Based Case Study

For this assignment, you will submit Part 3 of the
scenario-based case study course project, which is due in Unit VIII. You should
evaluate and revise the recommendations as needed during the process for each
previous unit as you learn more during the progression of this course. Please
continue to draw upon your imagination to think creatively on potential
concerns with fire and explosive hazards, fire controls, and fire and emergency
management. Look at fire protection technology in a holistic way that is significantly
different from what was previously designed by thinking in isolation. You will
evaluate and develop recommendations to resolve potential fires in the future.

Section I

As you make suggestions to improve fire detection and alarm
systems, refer back to the background information, if needed, to provide you
with the necessary material to identify the basic components common to fire
protection for the City of Washington Distribution Warehouse.

This assignment is not looking for compliance with building
codes nor expecting you to be a fire protection system designer. However, the
purpose of this assignment is for you to apply the concepts and knowledge you
learned in this unit as you begin writing your final project, which will cover
protection systems that will detect, contain, control, and extinguish a fire.
This assignment provides you with the opportunity to use your skills,
expertise, and experience to enrich your response.

Prepare a well-organized narrative addressing the fire
detection and alarm system, and provide your recommendations after reviewing
the background information and information above. Your discussion will consist
of your evaluation of the previous fire detection and alarm system. In
addition, from reading the textbook chapters and any additional research you
conduct about detection and alarm systems, discuss your recommendations for the
rebuild of the warehouse. Be sure to include the information below.

  • Briefly
    explain the function of a fire alarm control unit.
  • Categorize
    the types of audible notification appliances.
  • Discuss
    the three types of specialty signals.

Section II

As we saw in the unit lesson, written plans, procedures, and
work practices are needed in any organization, no matter how large or small
they may be. Written plans and procedures point out unforeseen hazards or
emergencies to the organization, employees, or even the public. Based on the
scenario in the unit lesson and the information above, discuss what is an
emergency action plan. What are procedures and work practices? Describe the
designated actions employers and employees should take to ensure employee
safety from fire and other emergencies after the warehouse is rebuilt.

For this assignment, you will write a two-page narrative
(one page per section) supporting your position. You must have a title page and
references page. An abstract is not required. You may use information from
reputable, reliable journal articles, case studies, scholarly papers, and other
sources that you feel are pertinent. You should use at least three sources, of
which one must be your textbook. All sources used, including the textbook, must
be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations
following proper APA style.

Question 3

Instructions

Many municipalities have private water systems and fire
hydrants that connect to the public water system. Private water systems
normally provide water to industrial and commercial structures. Consider the
interactions of private/public contractors or engineers with utilities in your
city, county, or state. Do you think a private water system would adequately
provide water to a fire protection system where you live? Would a public water
system adequately provide water to a fire protection system where you live? Is
one better than the other? What are your thoughts?

Your journal entry must be at least 200 words. No references
or citations are necessary.

Question 4

Instructions

Part 4: Scenario-Based Case Study

Refer to the unit study guide for the needed information
about water systems before attempting to complete this assignment.

For this assignment, you will submit Part 4 of the
scenario-based case study course project, which is due in Unit VIII. You should
evaluate and revise the recommendations as needed during the process for each
previous unit as you learn more during the progression of this course. Please
continue to draw upon your imagination to think creatively on potential
concerns with fire and explosive hazards, fire controls, and fire and emergency
management. Look at fire protection technology in a holistic way that is
significantly different from what was previously designed by thinking in
isolation. You will evaluate and develop recommendations to resolve potential
fires in the future.

Section I

As you make suggestions to improve life, safety, and fire
protection, refer back to the background information, if needed, to provide you
with the necessary material to identify the basic components common to fire
protection for the City of Washington Distribution Warehouse.

As we have been building on each phase of the scenario for
fire protection design, evaluate the appropriate quality, quantity, and
pressure of the water protection system in the scenario.

This assignment is not looking for compliance with building
codes nor expecting you to be a fire protection system designer. However, the
purpose of this assignment is for you to apply the concepts and knowledge you
have learned in this unit as you begin writing your final project covering
protection systems that will detect, contain, control, and extinguish a fire.
In addition, this assignment provides you with the opportunity to use your
skills, expertise, and experience to enrich your response.

Prepare a well-organized narrative addressing the existing
water distribution system suppling the fire protection system for the warehouse
described in the unit study guide. Your discussion will consist of your
evaluation of the water system and the effect of water pressure on the fire as
it relates to the movement of water, the components of a water supply and
distribution network, and if the warehouse should be on the public water system
or private water system.

Section II

In the unit lesson, fire brigades were described. Explain
the views to a reader unfamiliar with fire brigades, including references to
specific statements. What are the characteristics of fire brigades in the
industrial or commercial setting? Should fire brigades be a part of today’s fire
protection? Why, or why not?

For this assignment, you will write a two-page narrative
