Fixed wildfire fighting systems for residential structures being developed and currently on the market are neither standardized nor regulated, potentially putting homeowners and their properties at increased risk. This project addresses background information on the nature of wildfires, a methodology outlining the process of creating a standard for evaluating these systems, the development of a proposed standard, and conclusions from the overall process. As part of the project the standard was applied to two commercially available fixed wildfire fighting systems. The project concludes with details on future work for revision and continued development of the standard.
