Author: Folkman, William S.

Date: 1968

Station ID: RN-PSW-169

Description: A study made in 1966 in Butte County, Calif., to assess the effectiveness of fire hazard inspection procedures was repeated in 1967. Purpose of the inspections is to secure compliance with fire safety requirements. The observed drop in number of violations suggests a carryover effect in 1967 from the first study. In many cases, personal contact was still necessary to secure conformance--despite exposure to the program in 1966; in some cases, more than one contact proved to be necessary.
