Apply NFPA 805 for safety around light water reactor electric generators.

Protecting the safety of the public, the environment, and plant personnel from a plant fire and its potential effect on safe reactor operations is paramount to NFPA 805: Performance-Based Standard for Fire Protection for Light Water Reactor Electric Generating Plants.

This document specifies the minimum fire protection requirements for existing light water nuclear power plants during all phases of plant operation, including shutdown, degraded conditions, and decommissioning. Performance-based methods are examined in detail, as well as fundamental fire protection programs, design elements, and nuclear safety and fire protection during decommissioning and permanent shutdown.

Major objectives include:

  • Nuclear safety
  • Radioactive release
  • Life safety
  • Plant damage/business interruption

The 2010 edition presents revised fire modeling for more appropriate ways to calculate fire scenarios. A new definition for fire compartment and editorial changes make NFPA 805 easier to reference and apply. (Softbound, 61 pp., 2010)
