Years of fire testing and the production of codes and standards have influenced building design and construction. Are we safer as a result? The answer is “yes,” but we all know that fires and explosions still occur, sometimes catastrophic, sometimes tragic. History keeps handing out new lessons.
Knowledge of codes and standards provides a means for assessing the cause of a fire or explosion and the effectiveness of fire protection measures that did or did not exist at the time of the incident. There is a particular obligation here to “get it right,” knowing that identifying root cause represents an opportunity to prevent a fire or explosion in the future.
