Abstract:

The ability to predict fire casualties would be useful in assessing the effectiveness of various civil defense emergency operations policies and fire fighting strategies. Most information on fire casualties is, at best, fragmentary and of doubtful validity particularly as it relates to wartime situations. Some data, however, is available that permits a rough assessment of the fire casualty situation. This paper gathers some of this data and presents some rules of thumb for estimating fire casualties.
