Future of Fire Research Information Workshop 2010

A broad diversity of organizations are actively engaged in reducing the societal impact of fire, including researchers, engineers, industry, academics, codes and standards developing organizations, and the fire service. New technologies are expanding opportunities to both access and share fire information, which may be beyond the reach of traditional sources. Therefore, it is important to engage a representative group of stakeholders in a dialogue to explore how to maximize the information resources across the greater fire community.

The objectives of the meeting are to:

  • propose and discuss a vision for a community-based fire information resource,
  • discuss sources and contributors of information,
  • secure commitment from participants to contribute, and
  • identify possible technical and non-technical barriers to success and how they could be addressed
