    L1 or L3 design question

    d) MCPs should be located on escape routes and, in particular, at all storey exits and all exits to open air that lead to an ultimate place of safety (whether or not the exits are specifically designated as fire exits). Those located at storey exits may be sited within the accommodation or on the landing of a stairway to which the storey exit gives access (see Figure 6). In multi-storey buildings with phased evacuation, in which only a limited number of floors are evacuated at one time, only the former option applies; under these circumstances, MCPs should not be located on stairway landings, as persons travelling down the stairway might operate an MCP several floors below that on which a fire is located, resulting in evacuation of inappropriate areas. e) Distribution of MCPs should be such that no one need travel more than 45 m [except where 20.2f) applies] to reach the nearest MCP, measured along the route that a person would actually follow taking into account the layout of walls, partitions and fittings. If, at the design stage, the final layout of the premises is unknown, the maximum straight line distance between any point in the building and the nearest MCP should not exceed 30 m [except where 20.2f) applies]; after final fit out of the premises, the limit of 45 m should still then apply. NOTE 4 These distances are arbitrary, but reflect the maximum acceptable distances between any point and the nearest storey exit commonly applied to many premises. f) The figures of 45 m and 30 m recommended in e) should be reduced to 25 m and 16 m, respectively, in the following circumstances:

    L1 or L3 design question

    5.1.3 Category L systems Category L systems are automatic fire detection and fire alarm systems intended for the protection of life. They are further subdivided into: a) Category L1: systems installed throughout all areas of the building. The objective of a Category L1 system is to offer the earliest possible warning of fire, so as to achieve the longest available time for escape; b) Category L2: systems installed only in defined parts of the building. A Category L2 system ought to include the coverage necessary to satisfy the recommendations of this standard for a Category L3 system; the objective of a Category L2 system is identical to that of a Category L3 system, with the additional objective of affording early warning of fire in specified areas of high fire hazard level and/ or high fire risk; c) Category L3: systems designed to give a warning of fire at an early enough stage to enable all occupants, other than possibly those in the room of fire origin, to escape safely, before the escape routes are impassable owing to the presence of fire, smoke or toxic gases; NOTE 1 To achieve the above objective it is normally necessary to install detectors in rooms which open onto an escape route (see 8.2). d) Category L4: systems installed within those parts of the escape routes comprising circulation areas and circulation spaces, such as corridors and stairways

    Woman Saves Herself

    A MIRACULOUS SAVE. Woman saves herself in Crocodile attack using a small Walking Stick. This is a story of self-control and marksmanship by a brave, cool-headed woman with a walking stick against a fierce predator. Here is her story in her own words: "While out walking along the edge of a creek just outside of our house in Darwin, with my soon to be ex-husband discussing our property settlement, Kids and other divorce issues, we were surprised by a huge 5 metre. Crocodile which suddenly emerged from the murky water and began charging at us very fast with its large jaws wide open. The Croc must have been protecting her young and her home because she was extremely aggressive. If I had not had my little £5. Reject shop walking stick with me, I would not be here today! Just one Hard Wack to my estranged husband's knee cap was all it took....The' Croc got him easily and I was able to escape by just walking away at a brisk pace. The amount I saved in lawyer's fees was really incredible and I got the lot. ps:- I luv that Croc

    Clever Flight Attendant

    A mother and her 5-year-old son were flying Air New Zealand from Auckland to Sydney . The son (who had been looking out the window) turned to his mother and asked, 'If big dogs have baby dogs and big cats have baby cats, why don't big planes have baby planes?" The mother, who couldn't think of an answer, told her son to ask the flight attendant So the little guy walks up to the galley and asks the flight attendant,' If big dogs have baby dogs and big cats have baby cats, why don't big planes have baby planes?" The flight attendant responded, "Did your mother tell you to ask me that?" The boy said, "Yes, she did. "Well, then, please tell your mother that there are no baby planes because Air New Zealand always pulls out on time. And ask her explain that to you."

    The Golfer

    A Husband takes his wife to play her first game of golf. Of course, the wife promptly hacked her first shot right through the window of the biggest house adjacent to the course. The husband cringed, 'I warned you to be careful! Now we'll have to go up there, find the owner, apologize and see how much your lousy drive is going to cost us.' So the couple walked up to the house and knocked on the door. A warm voice said, 'Come on in.' When they opened the door they saw the damage that was done: glass was all over the place, and a broken antique bottle was lying on its side near the pieces of window glass. A man reclining on the couch asked, 'Are you the people that broke my window?' 'Uh...yeah! , sir. We're sure sorry about that,' the husband replied. 'Oh, no apology is necessary. Actually I want to thank you.. You see, I'm a Genie, and I've been trapped in that bottle for a thousand years. Now that you've released me, I'm allowed to grant three wishes. I'll give you each one wish, but if you don't mind, I'll keep the last one for myself.' Wow, that's great!' the husband said. He pondered a moment and blurted out, 'I'd like a million dollars a year for the rest of my life.' 'No problem,' said the genie 'You've got it, it's the least I can do...and I'll guarantee you a long, healthy life!' 'And now you, young lady, what do you want?' the genie asked. 'I'd like to own a gorgeous home in every country in the world complete with servants,' she said. 'Consider it done,' the genie said. 'And your homes will always be safe from fire, burglary and natural disasters!' 'And now,' the couple asked in unison, what's your wish, Genie?' 'Well, since I've been trapped in that bottle, and haven't been with a woman in more than a thousand years, my wish is to have sex with your wife.' The husband looked at his wife and said, 'Gee, honey, you know we both now have a fortune, and all those houses. What do you think?' She mulled it over for a few moments and said, 'You know, you're right. Considering our good fortune, I guess I wouldn't mind, but what about you, Honey?' You know I love you sweetheart,' said the husband. I'd do the same for you!' So the genie and the woman went upstairs where they spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying each other. The Genie was insatiable. After about three hours of non-stop sex, the genie rolled over and looked directly into her eyes and asked, How old are you and your husband?' 'Why, we're both 35,' she responded breathlessly. 'No Kidding,' he said. 'Thirty-five years old and you both still believe in genies?'
