Maskell, D.V., 1973. COST OF FIRE PROTECTION-TOWARDS A DEFINITION. Fire Research Notes 898


This is the first part of a study of the cost of fire protection to the nation as a whole aimed at giving details of the various categories that go to make up the account, ie passive, active and indirect measures. Large sections of this account are vague in content or ill defined and before any real cost assessment can be made the subject must first be defined. This first report offers such a definition which, it is hoped, will form the basis of future cost exercises. Its purpose is essentially that of formulating a framework upon which any cost of fire protection study could be fixed such that in time these studies could be combined to produce an overall picture.
