Fundamentally, fire prevention and control refer to systems and practices that increase a facility's ability to avoid fires, limit the development and spread of fires, and rapidly and effectively control fires. Changing safety codes and regulations along with recent technological advances have rendered the first edition of this popular handbook somewhat out of date and left fire safety professionals without a current, reliable reference devoted to their needs.

Comprehensive, uniquely focused, and completely up to date, the Industrial Fire Protection Handbook, Second Edition provides a practical guide for improving fire prevention and protection within a work environment. The author has made extensive revisions, significantly expanded his discussions in key areas, and added numerous examples and illustrations to provide a better-than-ever overview of all essential areas of fire protection, including loss control programs, fire behavior, life safety, hazard control, and emergency planning.

New in the Second Edition:
  • Discussions of new extinguishing agents, including wet chemical and clean agents designed to replace halon
  • Significantly expanded coverage of general loss control programs
  • More in-depth treatment of hazard control and life safety issues
  • Broader coverage of installed fire protection systems
  • More examples covering selection, placement, and maintenance of fire extinguishers
