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, thus helping to modernize the record-keeping process at Plant Services. A database was created for fire-safety equipment. CAD drawings for five buildings were updated, and safety equipment was indicated by symbols on a campus map. The database and CAD drawings were linked by Graphical Information System software. The fire protection coverage was calculated, and the fire-code compliance was evaluated.
