Author: Folkman, William S.;

Date: 1967

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: To assess effectiveness of fire hazard inspection procedures in securing compliance with fire safety requirements, effects of different types and combinations of contacts and timing were determined, and the production capacity of inspectors measured. It was demonstrated that fire law inspection is as much fire prevention education and engineering as it is law enforcement. The public was found to be uninformed about fire laws but was very receptive to an inspection program.

Keywords: Fire prevention, fi re hazard inspection, fire law violation, California, Butte County, fire prevention education, forest fire prevention, forest fire risk, Line Project: 2105.
