This project developed an information system to manage fire safety equipment data on the WPI campus .The system provides the ability to track safety equipment, helping to modernize record process at Plant Services. Databases were created for fire safety equipment. CAD drawings for five building were updated, and safety equipment was indicated by symbols on a campus map. The databases and CAD drawings were linked by Graphical Information System software. The fire protection coverage was calculated, and fire-code compliance was evaluated.
