Research was conducted on factors influencing fire safety in Brazil and how implementation of a national fire incident reporting system could help. Review of fire incident reporting systems from the United States, United Kingdom, Finland, Singapore, and Hong Kong revealed several attributes, which if implemented, could help improve the fire problem in Brazil. However, research suggests that several other factors need to be addressed first, including the challenges associated with favelas, fire safety culture, fire regulations and fire service resources.
