An evidence-synthesizing project utilizing research from scientific literature and recommendations from leading professional organizations on fire safety was completed for this module. The purpose of this module is to educate staff about fire safety in the operating and procedural room. Specifically, this module will educate providers about: (1) the importance of fire safety, (2) the fire triangle, (3) scenarios highly conducive to fire, (4) fire prevention using the fire risk assessment score, (5) management of fires on the patient and in the airway, and (6) fire interventions. For the purposes of this paper, the term "operating room (OR)" will include all areas of the healthcare setting where procedures are performed.
