IVS: THE DRIVING FORCE OF FIRE SAFETY MANAGEMENT

13/04/12

According to the statistic data from MPS (Ministry of Public Security) Fire Department in 2011, 125,402 fires were reported nationwide, which caused 1,106 deaths, 572 injuries and RMB 1.88 billion direct property losses, indicating severe situation for fire safety management. Though local governments in various regions have enacted relevant laws and regulations on fire safety, this seem still insufficient to curb fire accidents. The reason is that the entire fire safety management system in China remains at a relatively low level.

As specified in current fire safety regulations, fire safety design for high-occupancy buildings should be approved by local fire bureau before construction, pass acceptance inspection before operation and fire facilities should pass annual inspection at the operation stage. In most cases currently, fire safety management is a compulsory formality. Due to ineffective implementation by local fire departments in various regions, compulsory regulations on fire safety management are insufficient to fundamentally help facility owners improve their fire safety management.
