It is the study and practice of mitigating the unwanted effects of potentially destructive fires. It involves the study of the behaviour, compartmentalization, suppression and investigation of fire and its related emergencies as well as the research and development, production, testing and application of mitigating systems.
Fire can destroy your house and all of your possessions. It can reduce an entire forest to a pile of ash and charred wood. Fire has unlimited destructive power. Some studies shows that fire kills more people every year than any other force of nature. Therefore, fire protection systems and standards have been made to reduce the risk of fire as much as possible.
