Abstract

A risk model was developed aimed at quantification of fire risk exposure at the Port. Risk methodology provided a basis for some of the conclusions and recommendations. Additional conclusions were drawn based upon a qualitative review and analysis of exposures, conditions, and current practices at the Port as compared with accepted practices.
