Title: Burning Down the House
 
We live in and use infrastructure on an every day basis, from our homes to the airplanes that we use to bring us across the globe, and in general, we feel safe. There is something that guarantees we are protected giving us this natural perception of safety. This presentation will focus on fire safety and reflect on the things that make us feel that we are not on the edge of burning down the house.
