The previous installment of Coffee Break Training described fire sprinklers that are intended for particular applications. This firefighter training vignette, “Special Sprinkler Examples,” provides eight conditions where they might be installed.
Coffee Break Training provides an overview of fire protection topics and does not include all details, requirements, or exceptions to the topics that are described. Always refer to nationally recognized design and installation codes and standards, the product manufacturer, or listing details for specific information.
