Publication on fire protection

Since *most* of the fire damage to museums, libraries, and historic
buildings takes place during construction, I think it would be very
relevant to put this on the Cons DistList.

    Subject: Fire Safe Building Rehabilitation

    Fire Safe Building Rehabilitation is a new book available from
    the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) A fire
    protection engineer and a preservation architect have
    collaborated to compile basic information on issues associated
    with protecting our built heritage from fire. The book takes the
    reader from basic conservation concepts through the technical
    aspects of current fire safety practice. It bridges the gap
    between the societal goals of historic preservation and safety
    from fire and emphasizes their mutual intersection. Although
    focus is on the situation in the US (where "old" is > 50 years),
    the problems are universal and the technical solutions are
    germane throughout the world. More information is available at
