This article takes a look at some of the methods of preventing, detecting and extinguishing shipboard fires, characterized as being possibly the worst kind of event that can befall a ship. Points covered by the discussion are: detector location, and maintenance points to consider; low pressure carbon dioxide systems; fire- resistant coupling; video fire detection; and the new Firehold smoke detection system introduced by Walter Kidde and suitable for use on all cargo systems.
