Refineries and plants have specialized fire safety needs. API strongly supports the principles of fire prevention as elements for personnel and property protection in the petroleum industry. Prevention programs provide the most effective means of ensuring personnel safety. Refineries install extensive fire protection equipment to include fire water systems, foam fire suppression systems, fire extinguishers, and fire alarms. While many refineries operate their own fire-fighting forces and equipment on-site, coordination with local safety responders is also important. Sometimes, refineries have opportunity to give back to their communities by sharing knowledge, expertise, and fire-fighting capabilities with their local communities.

API also partners with NFPA to develop fire codes, and API documents are cited in NFPA documents. Currently, nearly 100 API Standards, Recommended Practices, and other documents are cited in NFPA codes. View a full list of these documents这里。访问一个短的可打印讲义,突出显示API和NFPA之间的集成这里
