Abstract:

How should elderly, ill or children be evacuated from buildings, residential care, healthcare and domestic premises? This guide provides support for designers, owners and managers of buildings so that they can formulate efficient strategies for the effective evacuation of people with mobility impairments. Qualitative guidance is given to illustrate the considerations that need to be made when developing an evacuation strategy that will be as inclusive as practicably possible. Formulae and data are also provided in order to quantify the relationship that exists between the size and nature of a population that may need evacuating, the resources that are available to effect that evacuation, and the level of fire protection afforded by the building requiring evacuation.
