This thesis analyzes an existing United States Navy computerized data base of fire incidents in aircraft hangars to demonstrate the usefulness of such a data base as a management tool and also the need for a similar data base in the United States Air Force. The analysis is accomplished using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences SPSS program to perform frequency, crosstabulation and breakdown operations on the data base. The authors concluded that the effective assessment of fire loss potential and the justification of existing or proposed fire protection policy could be greatly enhanced by information on the frequency, causes, and behavior of historical fire incidents.
