The Benemérito Cuerpo de Bomberos de Costa Rica’s (CBCR) current voluntary fire inspection program of public buildings is not sustainable. The program is unable to meet the goal of ensuring all buildings are adequately protected against fires. We developed a framework for a regulatory fire inspection program for CBCR based upon international best practices and CBCR’s current resources. We recommended that CBCR add a diagnostics team to their organizational structure, the Access database we created to systematize their records, and an educational component for both citizens and CBCR staff. We also suggested that they collaborate with the Ministry of Health to improve enforcement, thereby increasing prevention measures and potentially saving more Costa Rican lives.
