    • Select fire scenarios, identify representative challenging scenarios, and group such scenarios into clusters for the purposes of conducting more effective consequence analysis
    • Develop appropriate documentation to accompany a fire risk assessment
    • Evaluate qualifications of those conducting a fire risk assessment

    Comprehensive coverage includes:

    • Factors to consider when conducting or reviewing a fire risk assessment
    • Guidance on how to address the changing effectiveness of fire protection equipment, features, programs, and procedures
    • Discussion on the role of qualitative, semiquantitative likelihood, semiquantitative consequence, and quantitative methods in a fire risk assessment
    • Discussion on cost-benefit analysis
    • Details about proper documentation and elements of a fire risk assessment
    • Guidance on applying risk-informed decision making for various fire safety goals including the preservation of heritage resources

    The Spanish NFPA 551 also covers the purpose and importance of using an operations and maintenance manual in conducting a fire risk assessment, and the importance of using checklists that address both likelihood and consequence. (Print, 36 pp., 2019 Spanish Edition)
