Quantifying efficiency in fire fighting operations

Svensson, Stefan LU (2010) International conference on Fire Science and Engineering Interflam 2010 In Inteflam 2010 1. p.893-893
Abstract (Swedish)
There is a great need to quantify the efficient use of resources during fire fighting operations. When addressing this problem, the focus should be on the results of such operations. This paper describes a number of approaches for quantifying fire fighting operations. Also, it identifies and discusses a number of aspects that has to be considered during such work, including inherent complexity, measurability and outcome of such operations.
