workload, it is impossible to meet inspection requirements for all state owned facilities

such as the dormitories at CSUF.

However, Santoya was optimistic that the inspection workload would be

improved by recent direction to allow the California Department of Health Safety to

conduct inspections of healthcare facilities. This practice would free deputies to conduct

additional inspections in state owned facilities such as CSUF (See Appendix D for the list

of questions asked Deputy State Fire Marshal Frank Santoya).

The information from this applied research project resulted in the development of

a dormitory fire safety lesson plan (see Appendix E). The lesson plan identified common

factors of significant fire incidents involving college dormitories. Areas of concern

included the causes of such fires, activities of fire victims, and the propagation variables

that contribute to loss of life. These situations were compared to the situation perceived

by resident advisors of CSUF in order to provide awareness training to the staff. Further,

detection, alarm, and suppression systems were included as were the policies and

procedures used to prevent tragic fires in residence halls. Again, comparisons were made

to the systems used at CSUF residence halls in order to give direction to resident advisors

during an in-service training session.

DISCUSSION

The purpose of this research project was to develop a fire safety education

program geared to teaching resident advisors of CSUF the causes of fatal fires in

dormitories and how to mitigate such events. The causal factors of fatal dormitory fires

were explored. Next, fire detection and protection systems were sought that best
