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.
*ICPE subject to authorization under headings: 1436, 4330, 4331, 4722, 4734, 4742, 4743, 4744, 4746, 4747, 4748, 4510 or 4511.

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
 Intervention

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.
