Fire – Vocabulary

Executive summary

Terms specific to, and in general use by, fire protection agencies.


This British Standard defines terms specific to, and in general use by, fire protection agencies.

The aim of this standard is to provide a unifying document so that terms and their definitions can be used throughout the fields of fire and fire safety, so that, as far as possible, a given term will always have the same meaning and that a given concept is always expressed by the same term.

This British Standard does not include terms for which the standard dictionary definition is applicable. Neither does it include terms and definitions which are unique to any small specialized discipline within fire safety.
