BU639 Domestic active fire protection
Almost all deaths in fires result from smoke inhalation. Detection and notification of a fire as early as possible provides the most time to escape. Stand-alone smoke alarms are required as a minimum for domestic applications, and sprinklers are a worthwhile upgrade because they control fire spread and growth.
This bulletin contains updated smoke alarm and domestic sprinkler information and discusses new regulations for residential rental properties. It replaces Bulletin 458 Domestic fire protection.
This bulletin covers:
- fire and smoke
- smoke alarms
- location of smoke alarms
- domestic sprinklers.
