Part 7: Scenario-Based Case Study
For this assignment, you will submit Part 7 of the scenario-based case study course project, which is due in Unit VIII. You should evaluate and revise the recommendations, as needed, during the process for each previous unit as you learn more during the progression of this course. Please continue to draw upon your imagination to think creatively on potential concerns with fire and explosive hazards, fire controls, and fire and emergency management. Look at fire protection technology in a holistic way that is significantly different from what was previously designed by thinking in isolation. You will evaluate and develop recommendations to resolve potential fires in the future.
Section I
As you make suggestions to improve the fire protection system, identify the components and accessories common to fire pump installations needed for the rebuild of the warehouse. Refer back to the background information, if needed, to provide you with the necessary material to identify the basic components common to fire protection for the City of Washington Distribution Warehouse. In addition, review the Points to Ponder Scenario in the Unit VII Lesson for additional information as well as Chapter 6 in the textbook.
This assignment is not looking for compliance with building codes nor expecting you to be a fire protection system designer. However, the purpose of this assignment is for you to apply the concepts and knowledge you learned in this unit as you begin writing your final project covering protection systems ​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​that will detect, contain, control, and extinguish a fire. In addition, this assignment provides you with the opportunity to use your skills, expertise, and experience to enrich your response.
Prepare a well-organized narrative addressing fire pumps and including your recommendations after reviewing the background information and the information above. Your discussion will consist of your evaluation of the previous fire pump and recommendations for the rebuild of the warehouse, based on information from the textbook and any additional research.
Section II
As we saw in the Points to Ponder Scenario in the unit lesson, electrical surge protection devices could have mitigated damage or even loss to the pump driver. Describe the benefits that surge protection devices provide for fire pump components and systems against the damages of voltage surges.
For this assignment, you will write a two-page narrative (one page per section) supporting your position. Use APA level one headings for each section. The heading should be indicative of the major section to follow. You must have a title page and references page. You may use information from reputable, reliable journal articles, case studies, scholarly papers, and other sources that you feel are pertinent. You should use at least three sources, one of which must be your textbook. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations following proper APA style.

We believe we choose freely to brush our teeth nightly but it can feel strangely uncomfortable, even impossible, to go to bed without brushing.

Habits are spoken of as behaviors that people engage in automatically that are difficult to change. Think of the habit of brushing your teeth. We believe we choose freely to brush our teeth nightly but it can feel strangely uncomfortable, even impossible, to go to bed without brushing. Sure we could do that for one night – but could we give up brushing our teeth for two years?
Now think of more serious habits like, for instance, addictions to drugs or alcohol. People are blamed for these kinds of behaviors because we believe they could choose differently. However, if something is a ​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​habit it is automatic and when things are automatic they seem to be without choice.
Human practices (i.e., habits) around industrial production and population-level consumption are the cause for the increase of global temperatures by 1.0?C since 1850 and the reason why global temperatures are projected to increase 1.5?C to 2.0?C over 19th century levels by 2050.
The argument of this week’s documentary focuses on only one area of economic activity. It argues that industry has caused us to become addicted to plastic because plastics play a critical role in our consumption economy. Do you agree or disagree with this thesis? Why or why not​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​?

Section I
As you make suggestions to improve the standpipe and hose systems, refer back to the background information, if needed, to provide you with the necessary material to identify the basic components common to fire protection for the City of Washington Distribution Warehouse. In addition, review the Points to Ponder Scenario in the Unit VI Lesson for additional information.
This assignment is not looking for compliance with building codes nor expecting you to be a fire protection system designer.

Prepare a well-organized narrative addressing the standpipe and hose systems and your recommendations after reviewing the background information and information above. Your discussion will consist of your evaluation of the previous standpipe and hose system, including classification and components, using information from the textbook and any additional research needed for your recommendations for the rebuild of the warehouse, including any impairments to standpipe and hose systems.
Section II
Read the Points to Ponder Scenario in the unit lesson before responding to this section. What are the various factors surrounding the ignition of cooking oil fires involving intermediate bulk container totes? What is the most effective extinguishing method for cooking oil fires? Consider the fire dynamics of cooking oil on the design of fire protection.
