This is the second of a series of two reports prepared during research into kitchen stove-top fires and a method of using cost effectiveness analyses to compare various solutions. The first report in this series is BRANZ Study Report 225 Residential kitchen local fire protection - experiments.
This project focuses on reducing the problem of cooking fires using the approach of local suppression systems. Specifically, the cost effectiveness analysis aspect of this project was to develop a framework to assess the impact of potential local fire protection systems for stove-top kitchen fires. An example system of a single residential sprinkler head was used for demonstration purposes for the cost effectiveness assessment framework presented here.
