Animal Housing Survey – We Need Your Help!

The Fire Protection Research Foundation (FPRF), the NFPA research affiliate, is conducting a study on “Fires in Animal Housing Facilities.” The objective is to collect and analyze information on fire incidents in or around housing facilities where animals are kept for any purpose (i.e. barn, stables, kennels, animal shelters, veterinary facilities, zoos, laboratories, racetracks, etc.) Access the survey now.

The questionnaire deadline is August 31, 2021 and completing the questions will take approximately 10 mins. If you have information on any fire incidents, we request you to retake the survey for each incident.

This study will help assist the Technical Committee responsible for NFPA 150, Fire and Life Safety in Animal Housing Facilities Code, which establishes life and safety requirements for both humans and animals in all types of animal housing facilities. The goal is to ensure that there are minimum requirements in place to prevent the loss of animal life, human life, and property from fire or other emergencies.

The anonymized and compiled results of this survey will be used in the final reports; the researchers will not identify you or your organization.
