Abstract

This project was sponsored by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to address the issue of fire safety in college residences and to assist in the achievement of the CPSC's strategic goal of a 20% reduction in fire-related deaths over the period of 1998-2013. We researched and analyzed the causes of fires, fire education programs, and fire detection and suppression. From this, we developed recommendations for the CPSC to address the issue of college housing fire safety.
