FIRE PROTECTION MANUALPREFACE
The First Edition of this Manual was issued by the Calcutta Fire Insurance Association in 1906 and was brought up-to-date and re-issued in 1930. The third, fourth and fifth Editions were published jointly by the InsuranceAssociations of India and Pakistan in 1948, 1950 and 1953 respectively to provide for the needs of the whole of theareas controlled by these Associations. The subsequent sixth, seventh and eighth Editions were published by theFire Sectional Committees of Calcutta, Bombay, Delhi and Madras Regional Councils of the Insurance Associationsof India. In the ninth Edition published in 1982, amendments and additions were effected to bring the provisions inline with current thinking on fire protection techniques and to encourage installation of fixed fire extinguishingappliances/alarm systems in relatively low hazard risks on the one hand and tighten requirements for design of systems suitable for high hazard risks such as Petroleum Refineries, Petrochemical and Fertiliser Plants on the other hand, which, world-wide experience has indicated, need copious quantities of water and other extinguishingmedia. In this tenth Edition an effort has been made to further update and streamline the regulations.The Manual should prove of value to factory owners and their technical personnel when dealing with mattersrelating to fire extinguishing appliances and also constitute a handy book of reference to Insurance officials.The maintenance of fire extinguishing appliances in an efficient state and familiarisation with all details of operations is essential if the maximum benefit is to be derived in the emergency of an outbreak of a fire.The Manual incorporates long experience of fire protection engineering both in India and elsewhere in the world.Compliance of the rules will not only obtain appropriate discount in the fire insurance premium but will also instilfeeling of security that the presence of an efficient fire-fighting equipment should engender. Direct loss from fireand the resultant wastage is always serious but the indirect loss and the resultant dislocation of business is oftenmuch more serious.The Regional Offices of Tariff Adv. Committee maintain an inspection staff of qualified engineers, specialists infire protection and prevention engineering and practice in all its aspects. The services of this staff are available tomake recommendations and carry out inspections in keeping with the nature of work. (All references to Committeeor staff thereof in this preface and in the body of the Manual apply to the Committee controlling the territory withinwhich the risk is situated).The Manual initially deals with portable appliances and small bore hose reels, which are considered as first-aidappliances. The regulations regarding trailer pumps are covered next. The last part is devoted to fixed external protection in the form of a hydrant system which is considered the backbone of the entire fire-fighting operations asit fights fires of serious proportions in all classes of risks and continues to do so even in the event of a collapse of the buildings/structures protected. High-rise buildings which have become a common feature of modern society present inherent fire hazard as fire brigades are often helpless in the face of fires in such structures and are unable tosave human lives and fight fires effectively with traditional methods. A separate section has, therefore, beendevoted for prescribing the specialised type of protection required by these structures.In case it is desired to install any appliances, which are not covered by this manual, assistance and advice may beobtained from the inspection staff maintained by the Regional Offices.Wherever reference to any Indian Standard appears in this Manual, it should be taken as a reference to its latestversion.* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
