AbstractThe analysis of fire statistics can provide a great deal of information that can be used to understand a fire problem, factors affecting life safety and reveal general trends and patterns. Therefore, the Fire Research Program (FR) at the Institute for Research in Construction took the initiative to gather Canadian fire incidents data. This data was consolidated into two databases from which the data can be easily accessed and updated as new data becomes available. In addition, FR has developed a tool that provides a user interface to the databases, allowing the user to easily view and update the data. The tool is also capable of generating various charts and tables, which enables the user to quickly create informative reports on the data when needed. This report describes the design and the functionality of the Canadian Fire Statistics tool.The development of the Canadian Fire Statistics tool has used Microsoft Access 2000 to create the databases and Microsoft Visual Basic 6 to create the user interface that interacts with the databases.
