Fire Prevention Research

University of North Carolina Injury Prevention Research Center

"Our work provided evidence about both the role of cigarette smoking as a cause of fatal residential fires and the protective value of smoke alarms. The study, with strong involvement by the State Fire Service, helped increase grassroots efforts and legislative attention, building on the excellent work that Andrew McGuire and others had been doing for years."
- Carol Runyan, MPH, PhD Lead Research Investigator, UNC Injury Prevention Research Center

National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS)
NVDRS is a state-based surveillance system that links data from law enforcement, coroners and medical examiners, vital statistics, and crime laboratories to assist each participating state in designing and implementing tailored prevention and intervention efforts. NVDRS provides data on violence trends at national and regional levels; each state can access all of these important data elements from one central database.

Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) Program
Sexual violence, including rape, is preventable. Recognizing this, Congress passed the Violence Against Women Act in 1994. This landmark legislation established the Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) program at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The goal of the RPE program is to strengthen sexual violence prevention efforts. It operates in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and six U.S. territories.

Domestic Violence Prevention Enhancement and Leadership Through Alliances (DELTA)
The Domestic Violence Prevention Enhancement and Leadership Through Alliances (DELTA) program seeks to reduce the incidence (i.e., number of new cases) of IPV in funded communities. The program addresses the entire continuum of IPV from episodic violence to battering through a variety of activities.

Injury Control Research Centers (ICRCs)
Injury Control Research Centers conduct research in all three core phases of injury control (prevention, acute care, and rehabilitation) and serve as training centers as well as information centers for the public. Research design in these centers is interdisciplinary and incorporates the fields of medicine, engineering, epidemiology, law, and criminal justice, behavioral and social sciences, biostatistics, public health, and biomechanics.

Residential Fire-related Injury Prevention
CDC’s Injury Center funds 16 states to deliver a Smoke Alarm Installation and Fire Safety Education (SAIFE) program. For each year of funding, state health departments solicit participation from at least two eligible communities.
