Rissmiller, Kent J.
Greifensee Fire Brigade, Switzerland
The town of Greifensee has a better than average fire-safety record for towns in its area. Feuerwehr Greifensee commissioned WPI to investigate the reasons for the town's excellent safety record. The project team used archived fire records, census data, and interviews to verify the record and determine the socioeconomic factors and fire prevention efforts that affect Greifensee's fire record. The research demonstrates that while socioeconomic factors do not affect fire, Greifensee's fire prevention efforts make it a safer community.
