Definition: The effectiveness of the fire detection equipment in alerting occupants.
NFIRS 5.0 relational edit validation rules are provided to ensure NFIRS data is consistent and correct for the fire/reporting concepts that are being modeled. Relational edits determine relationships between multiple fields / elements. These are the rules for ‘Detector Effectiveness’.
|Relational Edit Rule 75||If the detector operated, did it alert occupants?.|
Here are the NFIRS codes for the ‘Detector Effectiveness’ element, including any “other” values in case none of the preselected choices match:
|Detector Alerted Occupants, Occupants Responded||1|
|Detector Alerted Occupants, Occupants Failed To Respond||2|
|There Were No Occupants||3|
|Detector Failed To Alert Occupants||4|
|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.|
