AbstractThe National Research Council of Canada (NRC) and NFPA, collaborated in this research. For NFPA, it is essential to better know what information to provide and how it should be presented to achieve its objective of making people more aware and knowledgeable about home fire safety. It is important to make sure that all the effort. time and money invested in education and training achieve the expected goals.Identifying the appropriate information that people can handle and the best wav to provide this information is essential in developing better fire safety educational programs. For NRC, it is important to be able to measure the impact of fire safety education so that this variable can be included in occupant response models. Fire safety education has been identified as a major factor in predicting occupant responsetime and actions during fire evacuations. The results of this study will help to establish a response factor for the Occupant Response Sub-model of FiRECAM which, in turn, will be linked to occupancies where educational programs are in place.
