Course Summary:

In 2004 and 2006, the small town of Bellefonte in Centre County, Pennsylvania lost two very significant historic buildings to fire: The sites of both of these large, freestanding buildings are still vacant today, taking a severe toll on the local economy.

Learning Objective:

The losses resulting from the large fires mentioned above prompted Bellefonte to establish a task force to review the current fire problem in the historic district and propose an initiative to reduce the risk of future large loss fires. The goal of the Bellefonte Fire Department Preservation and Fire Prevention Task Force is to prevent destructive fires in historic Bellefonte and provide the highest degree of life safety possible, while still preserving the town’s historic character and retaining the architectural integrity of the individual buildings.
