Fire Risk in Senior Population Analysis of Canadian Fire Incidents

This research explores the risk of casualties (fatalities and injuries) among the senior population (aged 65 and over) in the event of a fire compared to the general population. The researchers analysed data available through the National Fire Information Database (NFID). The research also explores variations in risks of fatalities and injuries as a function of life safety systems and analyzes the action and condition of casualties at fire incidents. We then create a forecast of the expected number of casualties based on the expected growth in the senior population.
