Building Fire Safety Fundamentals (4 credit hours)
Building fire safety is the protection of occupants and firefighters during fire events. Generally, the risk of life loss due to smoke inhalation and fire exposure within buildings is mitigated through a “defense in depth” framework in which multiple layers of defenses are employed that range from prevention of ignition to prevent of building collapse due to fire exposure. Accordingly, building codes enforce societally acceptable minimum levels of protection for each of these defense-in-depth principles/features.
 
This course 4 hour course will cover the fundamental aspects of building fire safety and corresponding building code requirements. Most all U.S. states adopt and amend a version of the International Building Code (IBC) as their state building code. Accordingly, this course is based on the regulatory framework of the IBC, and the author will convey the salient aspects of key provisions based on experience gained as a fire/life safety code consultant.
