Summary: This textbook matches the course outline and objectives identified by the FESHE committee for the Fire Protection Systems core course.

Fire detection and suppression systems include various privately owned devices and equipment that have been installed or located within or about a property to deal with the outbreak of fire. The purpose of these systems is to provide a means by which fires may be prevented or attacked in their incipient phase and/or controlled
