Elsworth et al put it succinctly in their program theory approach to communities living with the threat of fire. “A theory of the way a program works... provides the starting point for planning evaluations in a wide variety of fields... The focus is on strategies that produce desired positive outcomes” (Elsworth et al, 2008: para. 1-2).
At the core of any fire safety programme are agencies, institutions, individuals, families and the community itself working in partnership toward the desired outcome of community fire safety. The programme itself, developed from current literature, succinct goals, objectives and strategies, and intimate interaction between all participants produces a theory of change that gives good results.

Few researchers have been concerned with the exact type of fear they are tapping and those few have generally attempted to make the distinction in an ex-post-facto fashion.
The previous and existing mode and material of construction, mostly ruled by country's weather, are highly prone to fire and hence, the necessity of fire safety. Ongoing terrorism has added an unprecedented angle to it.
Fire fighters are perhaps one of the oldest institutions in United Kingdom and still remain more of a service-oriented profession with noble ideals and goals.
There is now a long list of measures that appear to signify a punitive turn in contemporary penalty.
Crime hurts. Crime destroys. Crime kills. As each one of us may be in agreement, crime is perceived as a horrible action or series of actions that human beings can commit- whether intentional or unintentional.
This theory follows a more humane way of dealing with crime rather than agreeing with the concept of capital punishment, or long term prison sentences.
According to Kelling & Coles (1996) following a thesis such as the "Broken Window" can allow communities to thrive, and live worry free, without fear of serious criminal actions in their neighborhoods transpiring.
The individual should not encounter any bias or discrimination in school, employment or when the need arises for medical care. Each person has their basic needs that must be met while progressing through the different stages of development.
