Understanding the Importance of Multiple Layers of Fire Safety Features…

Fire Safe North America™ (FSNA) is pleased to announce the acceptance to serve as the lead agency for the Industry Council, a sub-group of the Project FAIL-SAFE Steering Committee. FSNA has also agreed to be a stakeholder and strong support of this initiative.

The project is designed to study the impacts on fire & life safety in structures equipped with multiple layers of both active and passive fire protection features. The goal is to understand how active and passive fire protection features interdepend on one another in providing the level of safety the public and the fire service have come to expect. A series of coordinated research projects will be conducted in an effort to provide quantifiable data to better understand the relationship between multiple layers of fire safety features and occupant survivability. The experiments will also provide critical insight into methods of increasing building and business resiliency when exposed to the effects of a fire event.

Launched by the National Association of State Fire Marshals Fire Research and Education Foundation, the FAIL-SAFE project aims at Factually Analyzing Integrated Layers of Safety Against Fire’s Effects.
