Lawson, D.I., 1968. FIRE RESEARCH AND ITS IMPACT ON SOCIETY. Fire Research Notes 711
Fire Research is helping to reduce the direct loss by fire and also the national investment in fire by improving fire-fighting and making sure that building regulations and standards in general are designed rationally for the fires that occur in practice. It is shown that in this way savings can be made. Various new developments in the field of detection fire-fighting and in the measurement of the impact of propaganda for fire prevention are discussed. The paper emphasizes once again the need for a 'systems' approach to fire protection which has been advocated by the Fire Research Station in the past.
