Human behaviour in fire


Assisted means of escape of disabled people from fires in tall buildings
Describes the background to recent UK regulations and codes concerning improved access and fire escape facilities for disabled people. Shows how the concept of safe refuges associated with escape stairways or evacuation lifts can be employed as part of the evacuation strategy. IP16/91 

British fire legislation on means of escape 17741974
Looks at the development of legislation relating to the provision of means of escape in case of fire prior to the publication of BS Code of Practice CP3: Chapter IV: Parts 13 and the guides issued for premises requiring a certificate under the Fire Precautions Act 1971. BR88 

Domestic fire deaths
Gives a simplified analysis of every domestic fire fatality in England during 1980 developed from the UK Fire Statistics published by the Home Office. Provides details within a regional and nationwide context of the age group of the victim as well as linking this to the tenure, age and type of accommodation involved. IP23/84 

Escape of disabled people from fire
Analyses the nature and severity of disabilities in people in the UK, and considers areas of disability relevant to emergency egress from buildings on fire. Gives results of studies of egress of disabled people and analyses them for use in risk assessment engineering. Develops a strategy for classifying disabled people and estimating the likelihood of each category being present in building groups used in Building Regulations. BR301 

Experimental programme to investigate informative fire warning characteristics for motivating fast evacuation
Evaluates the effectiveness of the display and message components of informative fire warning systems in motivating fast evacuation of the public from buildings. BR172 

Factors determining life hazards from fires in residential buildings
First of a two-part report on the effectiveness of fire precautions in practice. It finds that initial detection, the actions of hotel guests and staff and the quality of workmanship and maintenance of the fabric are among the most important influences. BR82 

Factors determining life hazards from fires in residential buildings
Second part of the two-part report. In common with hotels the conditioning and action of patients or residents which are the major factors. As would be expected, evacuation is slowed down and made difficult by disablement or illness a situation which is alleviated by staff availability and well-drilled response. BR83 

Fire and disabled people in buildings
A treatise on disabled people with respect to fire. Provides a convenient summary of international work in the field and augments it from the viewpoint of the fire safety engineer. BR231 

Psychological aspects of informative fire warning systems
Summarises research using simulations of informative fire warning systems in a number of buildings, and how the information they carried, and training procedures, can most effectively promote rapid, safe evacuation. BR127 

Studies of human behaviour in fire
Summarises the work done at the University of Surrey for the Fire Research Station as well as giving an overview of studies in the United States at the National Bureau of Standards and the National Fire Protection Association. This has led to a model of human behaviour in fires. The implications of the model and the findings of the various studies are discussed in relation to training, education, publicity, design and legislation. BR61 

The behaviour of people in fire
This paper suggests how the range of people's reactions must be considered along with the relevant fire legislation when buildings are designed if the effects of smoke and heat are to be reduced for the occupants of a building. Aimed at architects and designers as well as fire prevention officers and safety officers. IP20/85
