CompTIA Security+ Question G-46

When implementing fire suppression controls in a datacenter it is important to:

A. Select a fire suppression system which protects equipment but may harm technicians.
B. Ensure proper placement of sprinkler lines to avoid accidental leakage onto servers.
C. Integrate maintenance procedures to include regularly discharging the system.
D. Use a system with audible alarms to ensure technicians have 20 minutes to evacuate.
