The Center for Campus Fire Safety (CCFS) received funding from the Department of Homeland Security to start collecting fire data for campuses across the country. This first year, CCFS focused on creating the tools necessary to start collection of the data and at the same time look at the requirements the Department of Education would have as far as collecting data about fires that will be required under the Campus Fire Safety Right to Know Act.
Your participation in this program will help CCFS better identify the problems campuses face related to fire on campus. From this data, CCFS will be able to create new training programs that will help you mitigate the risk of fire on your campus.
Your data is secure and not available for others to see. You have the ability to run reports and measure your school statistics for your state, region or on a national level. CCFS will also provide reports that show where problems are and from that find schools that are successfully solving problems and share their success stories with you.
CCFS will also start using these statistics to help Fire Protection Engineers, Technical Code Committees, Local Fire Services, Fire Safety Educators, Legislators, Insurance and Industry representatives find creative new solutions to the issue of campus fire safety.
