Hospital Fire Alarm System Analysis & Design – A Case Study

This case study discusses major design and installation considerations entailed in a complete overhaul of a fire alarm system in a highly critical facility, and it examines life safety features of a fire alarm system in an existing high-rise hospital.  Features of the fire alarm system included in the discussion revolve around partial evacuation strategies, private mode signaling, emergency voice and mass notification applications, positive alarm sequencing considerations, distributed antennae for emergency responders retrofitting, and the construction of a fire command center to address the needs of the fire service.
