UAE Fire and Life Safety Code of Practice
Fires in a building with inadequate fire protection features can present severe problems and create complexity in a fire fighting operation. This inevitably causes deficiency in the protection of occupants from fire and smoke during the egress or evacuation.
The fire professionals, consultants and contractors have been adopting mostly on standards from the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) with regards to the life safety design, building construction, fire protection, fire fighting, fire alarm and smoke ventilation systems. However UAE requires a Code of Practice that suits the local trend and concept as well as the fire fighting operational needs.
