Presenter: Jim Milke
This session will explore the relative role of smoke detectors and sprinklers in commercial, industrial, and educational occupancies. The session will review results from published research reports to identify statistical information that provides insight on the cause of single and multiple deaths from fire for commercial and industrial properties. In addition, the research involved a collaboration with the Center for Campus Fire Safety (CCFS) to analyze data collected in their Campus Fire Data Reporting System (CFDRS), including fire incidents in on- and off-campus housing. The analysis will provide detailed insights into the causes for the fatal and non-fatal casualties.
