The new edition of the Introduction to the Fire Detection and Alarm Industry is a direct result of the CFAA's response to  the introduction and adoption of new editions of the National Building Code, National Fire Code, CAN/ULC-S524 Installation of Fire Alarm Systems, CAN/ULC-S537 Verification of Fire Alarm Systems, and CAN/ULC–S536 Inspection and Testing of Fire Alarm Systems. Subsequent to the release of the new national codes have come new editions of provincial building and fire codes. This manual provides a general understanding of fire alarm protection systems. It discusses the purpose and specific application of the different codes and standards that regulate the industry.
 
The Introduction to the Fire Detection and Alarm Industry is the companion manual to the Canadian Fire Alarm Association’s Course One - An Introduction to the Fire Detection and Alarm Industry. It introduces the student to architectural considerations regarding fire containment. Information about testing laboratories, their procedures, testing methods and how listed/approved materials achieve greater degrees of life safety will be covered. Other topics include the nature of fire, extinguishment methods, fire alarm testing methods, and interpretation of drawings, specifications and other contract documents.
