Project description
In Chapter 8 of this unit’s reading assignment, special fire extinguishing systems were discussed, most notably water-mist fire suppression systems and foam fire extinguishing systems. These two types of extinguishing systems are used only in special circumstances as discussed in your textbook. For this assignment, choose a peer-reviewed article to review regarding the use of either one of these systems. Use the databases within the CSU Online Library, or use another source that contains peer-reviewed articles. The purpose of this assignment is for you to practice reviewing articles that contribute to the industry. The authors of these articles are researchers and professionals who have shared or experimented with ideas that demonstrate potential to improve the industry. As a professional in the industry, it is in your best interest to review the literature and trends. This provides you with the opportunity to read about what was successful and how it was accomplished. Plus, it allows you to analyze what was unsuccessful, how you can improve it, or at least how you can avoid repeating the mistakes of others. Use these skills to contribute to Research Papers and other scholarly writings. If you have not already, hopefully, you will contribute to the industry by publishing an article and sharing with your community of peers.

As you read the article you choose for this assignment, consider the following questions: How could the topic of this article apply to your personal or professional life? How could it apply to an organization you have observed?
The article you choose must meet the following requirements:
• Be peer reviewed;
• Relate to the concepts within this course; and
• Be at least ten pages in length.

The writing you submit must meet the following requirements:
• Be at least two double-spaced pages in length;
• Identify the main topic/question;
• Identify the author’s intended audience;
• Summarize the article for page one; and
• Explain how the system was used within the building to suppress or extinguish the fire for page two.
• Do you feel that the system discussed within the article did enough to protect the building it was in as well as its occupants? Why, or why not?
