» Fire Protection Impairment Program

The probability of a fire or explosion causing major damage is increased whenever a fire protection system is impaired. The longer the fire protection system is impaired, the greater the probability becomes; therefore, it is necessary to minimize the duration and scope of any impairment or provide for an alternate protection system.

 A Fire Protection Impairment Program is an effective management program used to:

  • Limit the number of unwarranted impairments
  • Supervise the safe shutdown of fire protection systems
  • Control potential fire hazards during the impairments
  • Restore the fire protection system to service as soon as possible
