SAFETY STANDARD FOR FIRE PROTECTION
|Publication Date:||13 July 2004|
This standard establishes requirements and responsibilities related to NASA's Fire Protection Program. It contains requirements for fire prevention, detection, control, and suppression through engineering, inspection, training, and firefighting.
Compliance with this standard is mandatory for all NASA owned and/or occupied facilities, both new and existing. The individual NASA Centers are responsible for implementation and enforcement. This document establishes minimum fire safety requirements. NASA Centers should apply risk management to processes in order to assess their individual programs and adopt additional requirements as needed. The need for compliance with this standard at NASA Center with contractors performing NASA work should be evaluated and made a contractual requirement where deemed necessary by the contracting officer and the responsible NASA Center program fire safety office.
