FireHAT© is our proprietary Fire Hazard Analysis software, an innovative modeling tool used to support our Fire Hazard and Mitigation Analysis (FHMA) methodology. The objective of a FHMA is to perform a comprehensive evaluation of potential, credible fire scenarios that the site would be expected to respond to and successfully control.  FireHAT© supplements our Fire Protection Professionals' knowledge and helps them to efficiently evaluate a facility's fire hazards and mitigation capabilities.

FireHAT© helps take the guesswork out of determining fire protection coverage adequacy and performing hydraulic calculations for protection systems. Its powerful graphical interface simultaneously displays the consequences of a process unit fire with the coverage capabilities of fixed fire protection systems, making gap analysis a snap. It also has a built-in hydraulic calculation tool that shows real-time impacts of changing a fire response so that users can determine whether their water supply, pumps, and piping can support the planned response.

We intentionally designed our FireHAT© software to integrate with our other software packages SafeSite3G© and QRATool©, which allows inputs and results to be imported from one software to another.

FireHat© provides you with the ability to:

Evaluate

Evaluate coverage of fixed firewater systems or other "first response" assets intended to control the spread and limit the escalation of a fire.


Calculate

Calculate maximum firewater demand based on existing and recommended fixed and mobile firewater coverage determinations.

Review

Review a facility's firewater supply and delivery capabilities based on expected response, demand determination, and fire duration.


Identify

Identify gaps in firewater coverage based on identified potential fire scenarios and installed firewater system capabilities.

Develop

Develop important data that can support the completion of fire pre-plans

In industries where the daily risks of potentially catastrophic events, such as vapor cloud explosions, are a constant concern, there’s no room for compromise – inherently safer design principles, effective hazard identifications and analyses, and adherence to up-to-date industry standards aren’t just important, they’re essential. Since its establishment in 1919, the American Petroleum Institute (API)…
