I want to do a bit more reading around what the requirements are for forced ventilation when linked to gas detetction specifically are there any reqquirements for it to be on for x amount of time after alarm triggered/stopped or if gas shut offs have triggered.

My main concern is the forced ventilation potentially drawing O2 into an unlikely fire. Anyone got anything that could be of use as a starting point?

It is common to link LEV and ventilation systems into the fire detection such that they are shut down if possible when the fire alarms are activated.
