There is, as yet, no absolute denition, although the following may be found acceptable:
Fire safety engineering can be dened as the application of scientic and engineering principles to the effects of re in order to reduce the loss of life and damage to property by quantifying the risks and hazards involved and provide an optimal solution to the application of preventive or protective measures.
