Partner Opportunity

The Construction Fire Safety Coalition is open to any interested persons or organizations that wish to help reduce the frequency and severity of construction fires. There is no financial commitment associated with becoming a partner.

Coalition partners will be asked to align on best construction site fire prevention practices and agree to promote awareness of the coalition. Further, we hope all coalition partners will offer available educational materials and programs to their audiences to help achieve these goals.

Information on becoming a partner is available upon request by email at

The mission of this website is to provide background information to both public and private sector organizations regarding how to reduce the frequency and severity of fires during construction. This site identifies many best management practices that were collected during a literature search.


This website was developed as a cooperative effort of the American Wood Council, an industry based Stakeholders Group and Fireforceone. The original research was based on search for management practices that could be utilized to “Reduce Fires in Buildings Under Construction”. The primary target audiences are those involved in the construction of large-area, multi-family housing.
