An excerpt from the IAFC’s Task Force Initiative.
Home fires and losses dominate the North American fire problem. Fires beginning with cooking appliances account for the largest shares of home structure fires and associated fire injuries in the United States and Canada. Electric ranges are by far the leading cause of home cooking appliance fires. The International Association of Fire Chiefs, Fire and Life Safety Section formed a task group to analyze the characteristics of the home fire problem, assess the potential of various protection technologies to reduce these fire losses, and develop recommendations to reduce these fire losses. This report summarizes the task group’s work.
