AbstractThe FiRECAM team, of the Fire Risk Management Program at NRC, conducted a survey to assess the level of interest of the fire safety community in obtaining a copy of the FiRECAM? software. In January 2000, a survey was sent to a sample of 700 Canadian engineers, consultants, buildings officials, fire service personnel and fire risk managers. Among the returned surveys, 80 respondents, or 74%, were interested in obtaining a copy of the FiRECAM? software through a license. Just over two-thirds of the respondents interested in a copy of FiRECAM?, were prepared to pay an additional fee for technical support and training. Most of the respondents who were interested in the software were engineer/consultants or building officials, who indicated that they would use FiRECAM? for ?design? and ?regulation?. Close to half of all respondents expressed interest in future collaboration with the FiRECAM team in the development of other advanced fire risk models.
