Abstract

An Internet tool “Palovara” has been developed at VTT for assessing and controlling domestic fire risks. Its main purpose is to improve fire safety attitudes at homes and to support the national initiative to reduce fire risks to private citizens. “Palovara” consists of three parts: a questionnaire on fire risks at home, a collection of Internet links to fire safety information, and fire simulations illustrating the development and spread of fire and smoke. The questionnaire responses have been analysed to detect weaknesses in domestic fire safety and focus areas for improvement measures.
