Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organize information in articles related to fire protection systems. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list there.

For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProject and Wikipedia:WikiProject/Best practices.

Adopt an article[edit]

Similar to the Collaboration of the week, but on a smaller scale, you might want to "adopt" an article. This would involve doing the research, writing, and picture-taking (if possible) for either a non-existent article or a stub. Of course, everyone else can still edit an adopted article, and you can work on other things too, but the idea is to find a focus for a while, to try and build up the number of quality articles the Project has produced.

Current adoptions[edit]

  • Example article: User:Example
  • National Fire Protection Association: I'll be overhauling this page, initially as a copy under my user page (user:Pskgoldberg/NFPA). This is my first venture as a wikipedian, and would appreciate any suggestions or comments, especially with regards to fitting this page in with the rest of the project. -- (Pskg) 09:00 30 May 2007
  • Aspirated smoke detector, Smoke detector: I'll be expanding the first article, and tidying up the latter + adding references. If someone could help me do that, it would be great! Also, it would be nice if someone joined the discussion, on whether or not they should be merged. -- Nabifly (talk) 03:30, 12 May 2009 (UTC)


Stub templates[edit]

This project has no dedicated stub template, however, the following are recommended:

  • {{company-stub}} for fire protection manufacturers
  • {{Tool-stub}} for other articles

These stub templates are not perfect fits, but perhaps in the future we will be able to get our own stub template.



Articles covered by this project are sorted alphabetically and rated according to quality. See Wikipedia:WikiProject Fire Protection/Ratings for more information about the rating next to the article titles.
