    Default Fire House Fires

    OK folks this grant guru needs some help from you this time. Does anyone know where there is a report which would discuss the incidence of fires in station houses? I have had no luck on USFA/NFPA/IAFC websites etc. Help me out here folks!

    Kurt,

    The only thing that I can think of that might help is the following publication (you may already have looked at).

    Federal Emergency Management Agency, United States Fire Administration. (2002). A needs assessment of the U.S. fire service.

    I know this publication addresses vehicle exhaust and such. I don't rememmber if it has stats on fires.

    No the reason being is the majority of time it is not reported.........The only way the reporting agencies would have this info if alarm and report were generated. Look under occupancy code of 888 (firehouse listing in NFIRS)

    So how do you get information off NFIRS for that code. Any help greatly appreciated, and please don't tell me it takes an FOIA request. God, that takes months to get answered.
