This project was sponsored by the National Association of State Fire Marshals to address the issue of fire safety in green buildings. We researched design characteristics of green buildings, awareness of fire safety, awareness of green building practices, and the ways that green building can promote or hinder fire safety. From this we developed recommendations focused on education of the fire services, as well as increased communication between fire officials and those involved in promoting the practice of green building.
