Russell Phillips and Associates (RPA) provides specialized fire consulting services to support your healthcare facility in handling the most complex issues, and works to simplify them into an operational strategy. This generally begins by completing a baseline fire protection survey of the entire building or a specific area. This helps us to drill down to the best strategies to solve potential problems.
Do your floor plans currently identify recommended fire department entry points? If the fire department enters through the main entrance and pushes through multiple areas to fight a fire, there is a strong likelihood they could unintentionally compromise another clinical unit or smoke compartment. This can be identified and addressed through pre-planning. Our evacuation floor plans clearly delineate suggested fire department entry points and horizontal evacuation locations for all units / departments.
