IS Codes For Fire Fighting

IS codes for fire fightingFire fighting is a term used for fighting against the fire. While we are learning civil engineering, it is must to know about the fire fighting. Because when we work as construction engineer we have to maintain our safety and the building or site too. Its a prime duty for a civil engineer that the building and the construction site must be hazardous free. If suddenly any such incident took place then, we have to prepare our self for it to maintain the safety. So here Explore Civil provides you the list of such fire fighting codes which includes water fitting codes, fire fighting units codes, detection and fire system codes followed by the Bureau of Indian Standard.
