Assessing toxic emissions at the rural/urban interface

(cover image)

Fire Note 114: This Fire Note outlines the emission products released in smoke from rural/urban interface fires and what this means. The materials burnt during the research are commonly present in a house or surrounds, but the current knowledge on their combustion is limited. A better understanding of the type and concentrations of potentially toxic gases and particles released during a fire will help assess exposure risks to firefighters and communities at the rural/urban interface.
