Fire Department Operations in Properties Protected by Sprink



Conduct fire service training with up-to-date NFPA 13E for safe and effective response in sprinklered buildings.

Make sure department personnel are trained in proper fire fighting techniques for buildings with activated sprinkler systems. Success depends on multiple factors, such as the type of system and the reason for activation. Prepare your crew with the 2015 NFPA 13E: Recommended Practice for Fire Department Operations in Properties Protected by Sprinkler and Standpipe Systems for the most up-to-date information and procedures in these types of properties.

NFPA 13E addresses:

  • Interior automatic sprinkler systems
  • Exterior sprinkler systems
  • Standpipe systems

New in the 2015 edition:

  • Clarified standpipe and fire pump operations guidance for the fire service operations personnel

Don't fall behind. For departments and fire fighter training programs, staying current with NFPA 13E is essential to effectively sizing-up and responding to various situations. This edition also includes illustrations of primary sprinkler/standpipe system valves and a typical sprinkler system layout to assist with training efforts. Annexes offer specialized information, such as Annex B with recommendations for fighting rubber tire fires in sprinklered buildings.

Fire department officers, fire fighters, company officers, fire department instructors will benefit from procedures that are designed to assist in developing training programs and planning effective operations. Recommended practices are given for the adequate support and use of sprinkler and standpipe systems. (Softbound, 17 pp., 2015)
