What is a P&ID in Fire Protection?

P&IDs (Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams) play an essential role in providing a detailed visual representation of fire safety systems and processes. These diagrams enable precise planning, effective risk management and informed decision-making to ensure the safety of people and property.

They identify key components such as smoke detectors, fire alarms, sprinkler systems, extinguishers, and smoke extraction systems. P&IDs also provide information on the connections between these components, alarm and action flows, and facilitate fire response procedures to enhance safety and minimize fire-related risks.
