AbstractFire loss statistics at the Ontario Fire Marshal's Office in Toronto were retrieved to find relevant data for the risk-cost assessment model which is being developed at the National Fire Laboratory. The risk-cost assessment model is a computer model that can be used to assess the cost effectiveness of fire safety provisions in highrise buildings. Statistical data needed include the probabilities of fire starts: the types of fire; the effectiveness of alarm and sprinkler systems in saving lives; and the response and set-up time of fire departments. The determination of set-up time was carried out in a separate study through collaboration with Ontario fire departments. The present report documents and discusses the findings of these two studies.
