Fire Prevention Plan
French regulation:The fire prevention plan is required by :
- The amending Decree of 2 October 2015, relative to above-ground storage tanks of flammable liquids or for crude oil storage settled in Facilities Classified for Environmental Protection (ICPE)*.
- The Decree of 16 July 2015, relative to mobile storage tanks of flammable liquids settled in Facilities Classified for Environmental Protection (ICPE)*.
- The Decree of 1 June 2015 concerning facilities subject to registration under headings 4331 à 4734.
The fire prevention plan will allow the ICPE to:
- Study the resources available in terms of water and fire-fighting foam to extinguish a fire in less than three hours.
- Define whether the resources are self-sufficient or whether they would require the use of the local Departmental Fire and Emergency Services (SDIS).
Your goals to pass your French regulation
- Choose the equipment necessary for sustainable, effective fight-fighting, correctly sized according to the fire risk and reference scenarios.
- Define and identify the organizational and human resources in particular with respect to the kinetics of the hazards, the exposure to heat flow and the range of your fire-extinguishing systems.
- Ensure the ability of the fire-fighting team (first and/or second response) to intervene effectively, quickly and safely
We assist you in the following :
- Studying the scaling and availability of resources available in terms of water and fire-fighting foam, substantiating their sufficiency (application rate, positioning, preparation in conjunction with the requirements of the Departmental Fire and Emergency Services (SDIS), etc.
- Fire-fighting master plan, in particular the timing for the implementation of the resources, their sourcing and implementation lead-time, the availability of water and firefighting foam resources, reasoning in terms of technical, economic and regulatory feasibility.
- Assistance in drafting the request to use SDIS resources, on a temporary or permanent basis, and assistance in relations with the public authorities concerned: the Departmental Fire and Emergency Services (SDIS), and the Regional Directorate for the Environment, Development and Housing (DREAL).
- Technical assistance: numerical modelling the fire kinetics, heat flow and analysis of the range of fire-extinguishing systems, definition of the technical specifications, technical examination of tenders, acceptance-testing of facilities.
- Support in organizing response teams and training of the staff responsible for implementing the fire-fighting facilities.
