As the keynote speaker at the Fire Protection Research Foundation symposium (SupDet) today in Orlando, Jim Milke, chair of the department of Fire Protection Engineering at the University of Maryland, delivered a talk on the comparative loss of life and injury analysis in commercial, industrial and education institution housing. Mr. Milke said that following a previous study conducted on residencies, hotels and health care facilities, a new project is evaluating the benefits of smoke detectors and sprinklers in these occupancies.

NFPA's Fred Durso recently talked to Mr. MIlke about the research project.
