Performance Measure Information
Name: Percent of multi-family residential fires confined to room of origin
Description: Success of the Fire Department overall in controlling the amount of fire damage in multi-family residences. Defined as the percent of fires confined either to the object of origin or room of origin. Measures the ability of the Fire Department overall in limiting the amount of damage from multifamily structure fires. Mechanisms for containing fires include both fire prevention activities such as inspections, sprinklers, and fire safety education and the rapid arrival and effective extinguishment of fires by Operations units. Multifamily fires are of special interest because, among property types the City has the authority to inspect, this property use shows the high aggregate risk for fire fatalities and property loss.
