This series of teaching modules is designed to provide building professionals and property owners and managers with an understanding of how to mitigate fire risks in historic properties. A second but equally important goal is to provide a means for historic preservationists, fire service professionals, and code enforcement officers to work together to mitigate these risks.  By involving each discipline in the instruction of these educational programs, the partners have the opportunity to teach fire prevention in historic buildings and to build team efforts to work toward the prevention of fire in historic buildings after the educational sessions have been completed.  The assumption is that it is likely to be someone from the historic preservation community to initiate the educational program but it doesn’t have to be.  Fire Service and Code Enforcement Officers can take the lead too.  The series has been developed with the core values of protecting people, property, and historic character as shared goals and public responsibilities.
