Fire Prevention - Summary
While conducting our environmental, health and safety assessment of the local schools, we identified a variety of fire safety issues and concerns. We have not initiated a standardized or regimented review of each school specifically looking for fire safety concerns. Instead, we have endeavored to resolve the problems as each was noted and identified. The fire prevention case study summarizes the concerns we have noted to date as well as the corrective action suggested or implemented. During the course of these activities we have relied upon the fire prevention guidance prepared by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Massachusetts Fire Marshall's Office.
