Building Exit Strategy Survival Preparedness
8 Juni 2011 17:44
The governing principle is that in every emergency, saving lives must receive priority. Building designers and Building Managements must recognize this principle. By providing adequate systems for evacuation with self help, either to the ground or to safe zones, Building Management can devote time to maintaining a safe environment for evacuation by concentrating on controlling the fire. Time is of the essence. Self Help is the key. Thus, every high-rise must be self reliant both for prevention and control of fires, AND for safe evacuation of all occupiers.
