Abstract. It is well known that halons are ozone-depleting substances and theirrelease into the atmosphere has contributed in the last decades to the reduction in theozone layer. In consequence to the Montreal Protocol, an international agreementdesigned to gradually eliminate the use of such substances, fire protection industryresearchers faced the challenge of finding effective solutions to replace halon extinguishers.This research aims to provide a method to support the decision maker inthe selection of the most suitable extinguisher substance for a specific application.According to such framework, a set of quantitative and qualitative criteria hasbeen established in the decision-making problem. Such criteria have been properlyregrouped in clusters in order to better evaluate their relative importance by means ofAHP method and the criteria have been used for scoring the alternatives. The choiceof an extinguisher substance rather than another has been subsequently carried outby means of a fuzzy TOPSIS approach, which reflects the vagueness of qualitativecriteria.
