  • Description

    Understanding how environmental conditions, fire, and other disasters introduce safety risks in the built environment is a critical competency for every Certified Fire Protection Specialist® (CFPS®). This fundamental knowledge provides the ability to appreciate the purpose of a fire hazard analysis (FHA) and additional steps of the risk assessment process, and how they determine both the probability of a hazard and the severity of consequence as criteria for risk acceptability.

    Unfortunately, catastrophic events are what typically drive code and standard change and aspects of safe building design. In the Safety in the Built Environment and Information and Analysis for Fire Protection Online Training, you will have the opportunity to explore how fire departments—and organizations on a federal, state, and local level—record incidents and analyze data to influence codes and standards formation. Through an understanding of statistical trends, it's possible to mitigate potential threats to life and property.

    This course features engaging video content chronicling what can happen when fire protection best practices are not in place. Participants receive access to downloadable NFIRS incident reports and NFIRS reference guide PDF job aids and learn by watching short interviews with industry experts on the topics of fire and explosion investigation and fire loss data.

    At the end of the Safety in the Built Environment and Information and Analysis for Fire Protection course, you should be able to:

    • Recall primary topics located in Sections 1 and 3 of the Fire Protection Handbook® (FPH).
    • Explain how conditions causing harm relate to fire and other disasters in the built environment.
    • Describe the components involved in a fire hazard analysis (FHA).
    • Use the risk assessment process to determine acceptable risk.
    • Describe systems and components of safe building design.
    • Summarize the roles of code and standards in the built environment.
    • Describe the types of organizations and their roles in fire loss investigations.
    • Analyze structural damage factors that exist during and after a fire.
    • Explain the role of the National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS) as well as its application and constraints.
    • Identify international sources of fire data collection.


    Who Will Benefit:
    Anyone involved in reducing fire loss, either physical or financial:
    risk managers, loss control specialists, fire officers, fire marshals, fire inspectors, safety managers, fire protection consultants, designers, engineers, code enforcers, facility managers, and others who have responsibilities dealing with the application of fire safety, protection, prevention, and suppression technologies.
