A program plan for nuclear power plant fire protection research has been presentedin this report. The principal objective of the program is to create a data base that would reduce the uncertainties in fire probabilistic risk assessment of plants. A three-pronged approach of characterization of potential fires, determination of the ensuing environment, and determination of failure thresholds of safetyrelated equipment in that environment is described. The techniques are to be applied to estimating the fire safety margin, available in a control room.
