The goal of this project was to provide the Metropolitan Fire Brigade (MFB) with evidence based recommendations to improve community resilience activities that promote fire safety in the home. MFB Home Fire Safety Campaigns from 2009-2013, fire incident data from 2008-2013, and other public safety organisations were analysed. Smoking fires, electrical fires, and the presence of a working smoke alarm were isolated as potential focuses of future activities. MFB can use the strategies provided to confront these issues to create a more resilient community.
