Fire safety service in preventive fire protection
Preventive fire protection aims to prevent fire from starting and spreading and to minimize damage. The aim is to protect people and property through preventive fire protection measures, because the better the preventive fire protection, the less defensive fire protection measures tend to be necessary. Preventive fire protection is divided into the three pillars:

The 3 pillars of preventive fire safety
Structural fire protection
Structural fire protection places requirements on the builder, owner or operator when constructing new buildings, renovating existing buildings or changing the use of buildings. The requirements are based on building law and occupational health and safety regulations on the part of the authorities. The preventive fire protection measures in structural fire protection are diverse and deal with:
- Selection of building components and building materials according to fire behaviour and fire resistance classes
- Planning escape and rescue routes
- Constellation of fire compartments within a building with fire protection devices, such as fire doors
- Accessibility of the building from the public space
The structural fire protection measures partly overlap with the technical fire protection measures, e.g. with fire alarm systems or fire doors and gates.
Technical fire protection
Technical fire protection includes all fire protection equipment that detects fires at an early stage and minimizes the spread of fire as far as possible. These include, among others:
- Smoke detectors and fire alarm systems for early fire detection
- Fire extinguishers and automatic fire extinguishing systems such as sprinkler or water mist extinguishing systems.
- Non-automatic fire extinguishing systems, e.g. wall, underground and above-ground hydrants
- Smoke and heat extraction systems
- Safety markings, e.g. emergency lighting
Organisational fire protection
Organisational fire protection deals with the correct behaviour in case of fire and the control of preventive fire protection measures. It thus complements the measures of structural and organisational fire protection. This includes the fire protection officer (internal or external) who checks the fire protection measures in the company. Furthermore, organisational fire protection also includes:
- Fire protection regulations according to DIN 14096
Escape and rescue plans according to §55 ArbStättV and evacuation plan
Fire safety instruction for staff
Training of fire protection and evacuation assistants
Organisational fire protection is not only the responsibility of the employer or building owner, but a task for everyone involved.
