Abstract
The Fire Risk Index Method is a tool for assessing fire safety in multi-storey apartment buildings. This report contains a description of how Version 1.2 of the Fire Risk Index Method was developed. The terminology frequently used in the development process of the method is also explained. The use of the Fire Risk Index Method is described and illustrated by an example. The method is applied to an existing timber-frame building and the results are compared to a corresponding concrete building. Other existing risk assessment methods are briefly described and evaluated in the report.
