Abstract. In this paper we summarize AAIA’14 Data Mining Competition: Key risk factors for Polish State Fire Service which was held between February 3, 2014 and May 5, 2014 at the Knowledge Pit platform http://challenge.mimuw.edu.pl/. We describe the scope and background of this competition and we explain in details the evaluation procedure. We also briefly overview the results of this analytical challenge, showing the way in which those results can be beneficial to our more general project related to the problem of improving firefighter safety at a fire scene. Finally, we reveal some technical details regarding the architecture and functionalities of the Knowledge Pit competition platform, which we are developing in order to facilitate solving of practical problems that require advanced data analytics
