Fire science strictly defines fire, its classifications, and processes. This program classifies fires and fuels into categories and groups, respectively, and clearly outlines their definitions. Understanding fires is learning the best ways to prevent and fight them. In this program, accurate methods are developed to predict when and where fires are most likely to occur and how to react in each case.
