The Requirements for installing a suitable fire detection and alarm system within a data processing centre usually requires a very comprehensive range of measures starting with a risk assessment covering the physical aspects of the centre, the electrical and mechanical systems, including the fire detection and suppression systems. The Risk assessment should formalise recommendations for the types of fire detectors suitable for use in various areas. The degree of protection may be dependent upon the risk, and be defined as low, medium, high or critical. Systems are usually interconnected to the main building system, where the data centre is part of a larger building complex. The risk assessment should include for the requirements of any fixed fire suppression systems.
