NFIRS 5.0 Element: ‘Detector Alerted Occupants’
Définition : Did the detector succeed in alerting the occupants, or not?
Purpose : The information on whether or not a detector alerted the occupants of a structure to an emergency is important for understanding fire control and life safety with and without detection equipment.
Entry : Check or mark the box if a detector alerted the occupants in this incident (regardless of whether the detector was smoke, heat, carbon monoxide, etc.). This block can be left blank for non-fire incidents, and can optionally be used for a carbon monoxide (CO) incident and whether a CO detector operated.
|Element Type||Coded Field – The coded field relating to an entry in the code table. Most coded fields allow for Plus+ One codes. For these fields the expected length of the coded entry is depicted as (National length OR Plus+ One length). Only fields with this notation in the expected length column allow for Plus+ One definitions. If the user has not provided information, an empty field should be transmitted.|
