The Construction Fire Safety Coalition mission:
To educate public and private sector organizations on how to reduce the frequency and severity of fires during construction.


Fire Safety Best Practices

The construction industry, building department and fire department are partners in achieving fire safe construction. Many organizations have joined forces to assure that best management practices are employed on work sites to prevent the ignition and spread of fire.

This site identifies many best management practices collected during a literature search. It places emphasis on personal accountability of all stakeholders in the process. The intent of this website is to provide generic guidelines as to how to use model codes and standards to reduce fire loss. This site recognizes that there are significant differences in the roles of various organizations – such as the developer, the construction team, the building department and the fire department – in preventing fire.

This website was developed as a cooperative effort of an industry-based Stakeholders Group and Fireforceone.
