Handbook

In a telephone building, the losses from damage caused by fire not only affect the persons and property directly involved in the calamity, but are felt throughout the population due to the effects of the service breakdown and the consequent loss of earnings from the service provider point of view. Moreover, the amount of information and services available to the customers is so high, nowadays, that equipment, buildings, infrastructures and installations need to be protected from damage due to calamities, including fire. This Handbook is specific to the prevention of damage and the protection of telecommunication buildings from fire.
