Automatic suppression systems, such as fire sprinklers, foam, gaseous, explosion
suppression, or other specialized extinguishing systems plus appropriate alarms. An
adequate supply, storage, and distribution system is an essential element.
Automatic fire detection, occupant warning, manual fire alarm, and fire alarm reporting
systems combined with properly equipped and adequately trained fire departments or
Fire barrier systems or combinations of physical separation and barriers for outdoor
Other systems, such as alternate process control systems, as approved by the AHJ.
Limited Supply Suppression System - A system installed in accordance with the applicable NFPA
Standards and having a limited quantity of suppression agent. These systems typically include
carbon dioxide, dry chemical, other gaseous agent, or water.
Maximum Possible Fire Loss (MPFL) - The value of property, excluding land value, within a fire area,
unless a fire hazards analysis demonstrates a lesser (or greater) loss potential. This assumes the
failure of both automatic fire suppression systems and manual fire fighting efforts.
Noncombustible - A material that in the form in which it is used and under the conditions anticipated
will not ignite, burn, support combustion, or release flammable vapors when subjected to fire or heat,
as defined by fire protection industry standards on the basis of large scale fire tests performed by a
nationally recognized independent fire test authority.
Occupancy - Occupancy classification, construction, and area limitations of relocatable structures as
determined under the provisions of the applicable local building code or the Uniform Building Code
unless otherwise specified by the DOE AHJ.
Relocatable Structure - Manufactured structures, mobile homes, trailers, semi-trailers, modular type
structures, factory assembled structures, cargo containers, hazardous materials or flammable liquid
storage containers, air supported/inflated structures, tent/membrane and cloth/rib structures. This
term does not apply to trailers and cargo containers that are being used in the transportation mode
