Evacuation in case of a fire
The evacuation of the building’s occupants has to be performed before the flashover, allowing a safety margin to ensure their protection.
In the image, the period during which the evacuation should take place is shown. It is important to ensure that the evacuation procedure is finished before the conditions inside the building become critical.
The human factor and building fire risk
The intended use of any building is closely associated with its occupancy. It is important to remember that the characteristics of the occupants influence the specific fire requirements for common building uses provided by building fire regulations.
