The report covers the development of a computer code to predict the effects of civilian and professional fire fighting on building fires initiated within an urban area by a nuclear attack. Cities are represented by a few thousand tracts, each of which is described in terms of the composition and size of its built-up area and the lengths and widths of firebreaks between it and built-up areas in adjacent tracts. The fire-fighting forces consist of two-man teams called self-help teams that can handle small fires in furnishings, four-man teams called brigades that can handle fully developed room fires in their early stages, and finally fire-dependent units. Provisions are included for alocating these forces according to the size, type and numbers of buildings in each tract. Author
