Fire Station Equipment or a structural house fire – electrical safety needs to be taken into account. Eastern Kentucky University. van der Feyst is the lead author of the book. Electrical codes and standards. The NFPA® family of codes and standards that deal with electrical issues are as dynamic as the subjects they address—including NFPA 70®, National Electrical Code® (NEC®), NFPA 70B, Recommended Practice for Electrical Equipment Maintenance, and NFPA 70E®, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace®.These extensive documents reflect changing . Class C: Live electrical equipment. When equipment is deenergized, extin guishers for class A or B fires could be used safely; however, in fighting an electrical fire there are two important things to be taken into consideration: namely (a) damage to the equipment far beyond what the fire . Designing Electrical Systems for Fire Pumps. Since fire pumps are considered life safety equipment, they must be reliable. When designing or installing electrical power supplies for fire pumps and their accessories, you must apply special rules as listed in (NFPA 70), the National Electrical Code (NEC), and the Standard for Centrifugal Fire Pumps (CFP) NFPA
costs are additional benefits of Electrical Safety programs. When electrical faults occur, the electrical system is subjected to both thermal and magnetic forces. These forces can severely damage equipment and are accompanied by fires, explosions and severe arcing. Such violent damage often causes death or severe injury to personnel. of lighting systems and electric motors. 8. Lighting Systems Explain the various light systems and some of the basic design considerations for lighting a space. 9. Fire Safety Discuss acceptable methods of extinguishing various classifications of fire and describe fire extinguishers and fire . Class C fires involve electrical equipment. Thus, elec-tricity is always present. It is often combined with combus-tible materials. An additional hazard of a Class C fire is the potential for electric shock while fighting the fire. If possi-ble, always turn off the source of electricity before fighting an electrical fire. electrical and mechanical damage to equipment and systems. Electrical and mechanical systems should be shut down and secured, and critical components should be removed or preserved. Examples of tasks to limit damage are as follows: (1) Remove critical equipment from their base and raise them above the flood line or remove them from the flood site.
