Summary

Fire safety is one of the most important considerations in the design of any building, including multi-level parking structures. It is important that owners and designers understand the risk of fires in parking structures so they can take appropriate measures to protect firefighters, employees and the public as well as protect the structure from serious damage. This publication summarizes the findings from technical resources and publications that indicate the relative risk of fires in parking structures, the nature of those fires, and measures to protect the parking structure occupants from injury and the structure itself from serious damage due to those fires. 2008, 15 pages
