The FireCARES project is a web-based tool intended to help fire departments effectively match resources to community risk. Among other things that includes estimates of the community risk and estimates of effectiveness of response. This report documents the estimation of the community risk for fires, fire injuries, fire deaths, and EMS calls. The community risk for fires is broken out by low- medium- and high-hazard properties as defined in NFPA Standard 1710.
