Comment gère-t-on le risque incendie dans un hôpital, un aéroport, ou dans un avion ? Les technologies de détection évoluent, ainsi que la communication et le traitement des informations. Les grands acteurs industriels se sont mués en fournisseurs de solutions à la problématique incendie. Avec la consolidation de ces informations dans des systèmes communs à d'autres métiers, la protection incendie apparaît de plus en plus comme l'un des maillons les plus techniques d'un métier plus large, celui de la gestion des infrastructures.
How does one manage fire hazards in a hospital, an airport or on a plane? If detection technologies are evolving, the key today lies in consolidating and processing information, with Danger Management Systems which also monitor security breach risks and transit management. By specializing in the design of system architectures, major industrial players have evolved into becoming service providers. Fire protection, thus, increasingly appears as one of the most technical elements of a wider business line: security.
