Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
This project, delivered to the Metropolitan Fire Brigade, Melbourne, Australia, developed strategies to improve compliance with legislation requiring household smoke alarms. Research, interviews, and analysis of fire statistics identified several at-risk groups. Current community education programming was compared to similar programs worldwide. Enforcing legislation was found to be effective in raising compliance. The team identified productive partnerships to reach groups at risk, identified internal organizational barriers, and framed guidelines for the design of educational programs.
