Fire Safety and Loss Prevention explores the ramifications of fire prevention and how the security department can implement fire safety systems and designs, even when fire codes conflict with prudent security practices. Fire Safety and Loss Prevention is a necessity for security directors, managers, and supervisors as well as owners of health care, retail, and commercial facilities. With all the various building codes, life safety codes, and fire codes, one must become familiar with every aspect of a building's design prior to formulating a strategic fire safety plan. Critical decisions must be made regarding the conflicting importance of fire safety versus security. Often security priorities must be lowered in deference to fire safety mandates, which are required by law. This book recommends practical advice for situations ranging from conflicting codes and regulations to criminal liability to handling hazardous materials.
