Building construction and furnishings have changed dramatically over the last three decades, but the tactics and equipment used by firefighters has changed very little.

These new methods of construction and new materials used in the manufacture of building contents negatively impact firefighter safety. This is not an unknown problem. Passive fire protection materials insulate steel structures from the effects of the high temperatures that may be generated in fire.

They can be divided into two types, non-reactive, of which the most common types are boards and sprays, and reactive, of which thin film intumescent coatings are the most common example.

Thin film intumescent coatings can be either on-site or off-site applied. Fires improv\d: being a new method of building chimneys, so as to prevent their smoaking: in which a small fire, shall warm a room better than a much larger made the common way.

A chimney sweep is a person who clears ash and soot from chimney uses the pressure difference caused by a hot column of gas to create a draught and draw air over the hot coals or wood enabling continued combustion.

Chimneys may be straight or contain many changes of direction. During normal operation, a layer of creosote builds up on the inside of the chimney, restricting the flow. chimneys; stairs, escalators, and elevators; sprinkler systems; fire escapes; other components relating to the operation or maintenance of the building, and; roofs.
