ABSTRACT
The article probes on the study conducted by the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control and the leaders of the Department of Homeland Security's Assistance to Firefighters Grant program in assessing the best practices in home fire safety nations. It has been found out that British national fire service has been undermined and to improve its service it needs to undergo massive changes. Thus, the effect was significant and worthy to be emulated by other nations as compared before.
