This manual provides the background information necessary for the planning of school fire safety programs by local school officials, particularly in Arkansas. The manual first discusses the need for such programs and cites the Arkansas state law regarding them. Policies established by the Arkansas State Board of Education to implement the legal requirements are listed. Principles and procedures affecting required monthly fire drills are explained. Community involvement in fire safety efforts is considered briefly. The manual next reviews the nature and classification of fires and discusses the classification of different areas in school buildings according to the degree and type of fire hazards posed. Safety considerations relative to mechanical and electrical systems are treated next, and adequate housekeeping practices are reviewed. The added hazard posed by community use of school buildings is addressed. The final section of the manual covers safety devices including detection equipment. The report form required for the monthly inspection reports of Arkansas schools is appended. (PGD)
