Criteria for implantation in Brazil


This article aims to address the issue of fire prevention and fighting in urban areas in Brazil, focusing on the implementation of urban hydrants systems, in view of the growth of fire events that have spread to large and small cities in this great country. The Brazilian municipalities have their urban growth carried out, in most cases, in a disorderly manner, that is, without a minimum of planning, which, in cases of fire, has made clear the lack of education of the population on its prevention, the lack of combat devices, whether urban or necessary devices inside buildings. A subject that has, in a way, evolved over the years, with the deployment of platoons of municipal fire brigades, the issuance of decrees, laws and technical instructions that aim to guide, through procedures in the implementation of firefighting measures existing buildings, and generate guidelines for new buildings and urban spaces. The methodology used for the composition of this article will be through a bibliographic review, approaching the history of fire prevention and fighting in Brazil, its correlation with urban growth and the prevention measures adopted by the federal, state and municipal governments, as well as by private initiatives. A relevant topic, and one that has been sadly underestimated by politicians, public entities, traders, and which is not so important for the vast majority of the population, which has caused the loss of lives and assets, including historical ones. Therefore, we want to address here the main historical and current points, for the consolidation of an article that can be made public, and that generates more awareness in the prevention and fighting of fires in general.
