In 1973, the presidentially appointed National Commission on Fire Prevention and Control published America Burning, its landmark report on the nation’s fire problem. The report presented 90 recommendations for a fire-safe America. For the past 15 years, America Burning has served as a road map, guiding the fire service and the federal fire programs toward the goal of improving fire safety in the United States. The original America Burning report made 90 recommendations in 18 chapters in the following general subject areas: the nation’s fire problem; the fire services; fire and the built environment; fire and the rural wildlands environment; fire prevention; and a program for the future. While much of the report and its recommendations remained valid and relevant, it was time to take a second look at America Burning and re-examine the progress made toward the goals and objectives stated in the report. Perhaps more importantly, it was time to make new recommendations that would reflect the changes in our society and environment since 1973, but still move toward a more fire-safe America. As a result, the conference on ‘America Burning Revisited” was convened in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., from November 30 to December 2, 1987. “America Burning Revisited” had a threefold purpose. First, conference participants were to reach a consensus about the status of, and trends in, America’s fire problem. Second, they were to revisit America Burning by reviewing and evaluating the progress toward the report’s 90 recommendations. Finally, the conference participants were to recommend guidelines for local, state and federal efforts to reduce the life and property loss from fire. The U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) planned to use the results of this conference as the basis for establishing its program priorities for future activities. This meant that the fire protection leaders participating in “America Burning Revisited” were to have the opportunity to map out the future course of fire safety in this country.
