Transportation & Transit
Solutions for Transportation and Transit
Transportation hubs and systems—including airports, railways, subways, ports, and marine facilities—present significant fire and life safety challenges.
Safe Transit Design and Operation
Every facility is unique, and each transit type offers different potential dangers and complexities, particularly around evacuation. Compounding matters is the human element—transit facilities are often overcrowded, loud, and chaotic. Transit facilities must incorporate designs by which large masses of people can be quickly and safely evacuated, and systems by which a fire is rapidly detected, contained, and successfully fought.
Only then can we meet our diverse transportation needs without compromising safety.
