Abstract
The Swedish Board of Fire Research has initiated a pre-study to investigate the possibility to setup a larger research project that would deal with residential fires. Through interviews, literature

studies and an initial statistical study, it is clear that there is a need for an umbrella project that

focuses on residential fires. The major reason for doing this it that the costs of residential fires

are high and that most fire fatalities happen in residential fires. A special effort is needed to be

able to reduce the number of fatal fires and the total number of residential fires. The project

The Swedish Board of Fire Research has initiated a pre-study to investigate the possibility to setup a larger research project that would deal with residential fires. Through interviews, literature

studies and an initial statistical study, it is clear that there is a need for an umbrella project that

focuses on residential fires. The major reason for doing this it that the costs of residential fires

are high and that most fire fatalities happen in residential fires. A special effort is needed to be

able to reduce the number of fatal fires and the total number of residential fires. The project

defines two themes as very important. The first theme deals with fire safety for people with

reduced capacity for action in case of fire and the other theme deals with fire safety in the future

living environments.

There is a need for funding from several contributors in addition to the Swedish Fire Research

Board, i.e. from the responsible authorities, other public and private research funders and

industry.

Two different ways to carry out the project are proposed. Either a form analogous with the

special initiative regarding arson fires initiated by the Fire Research Board or through a center of

competence; "BIB - Fires in Housing environment" that would include all major stakeholders

and anchored within the organization of the Fire Research Board.

The direct benefit of this pre-study is the compilation of the current knowledge within the area

and the research presented. (Less)
