    Abstract

    Fire risk rating schedules (FRRS) are heuristic models of fire safety. They constitute various processes of modeling and scoring fire hazards and other risk parameters to produce a rapid and simple estimate of relative risk. Selected examples of FRRSs are briefly described to illustrate the nature and diversity of these methods. Following the examples, general characteristics and common components of FRRSs are discussed. The analysis in this paper is intended to lead to a more rational and consistent approach in the development and evaluation of fire risk rating schedules.
