[L P Clark; Center for Fire Research (U.S.)] The design of any fire-protection system is an exact science that takes into account a building’s use, occupancy, footprint, and even its other installed systems.

“Fire-protection systems are complicated and sophisticated, and are different for just about every building,” notes Jeffrey E. Harper, engineering manager and vice president at Structure Fires in Health Care Facilities. The annual number of structure fires in health care properties reported to United States fire departments has followed a moderate downward trend since After falling between andthe estimated number of fires has increased each year since /Building-and-Life-Safety/Fires-in-Health-Care-Facilities.
