A matter of time : a comprehensive guide to fire emergency planning for board and care homes by N. E Groner ( Book )
4 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A guide to board and care fire safety requirements in the 1991 edition of the Life safety code by N. E Groner ( Book )
4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The board and care requirements in the Life safety code are often complicated and difficult to understand. This guide offers clear explanations and interpretations of the board and care requirements in the 1991 edition of the Life safety code. Included are chapters that cover the historical origins of the requirements and explanations of the contents and administration of the Life safety code in general. Also included are an appendix that suggests appropriate requirements for very small board and care homes (fewer than four residents) and another appendix that offers fire emergency planning advice."--Abstract, Manuscript review and approval p

Feasibility of fire evacuation by elevators at FAA control towers by John H Klote ( Book )
2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Throughout most of the world, warning signs next to elevators indicated they should not be used in fire situations. Because these elevators have not been designed for fire evacuation, they should not be used for fire evacuation. However, the idea of using elevators for fire evacuation has gained considerable attention. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has sponsored a project to study the feasibility of elevator emergency evacuation at air traffic control towers. This paper describes this project including (1) a general discussion of elevator evacuation, (2) presentation of conceptual criteria for such elevator evacuation systems, and (3) application of that criteria to several ATCTs. It is concluded that elevator emergency evacuation is not feasible for existing ATCTs. This could change for some standard designs if water resistant elevator components are developed that make water protection of elevators feasible. However, elevator emergency evacuation is feasible for new ACTCs, and this would involve significant challenges concerning engineering and human factors."--Abstract

Human factors considerations in the potential for using elevators in building emergency evacuation plans by N. E Groner ( Book )
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: If elevators could be used in fire emergencies, the safety of building occupants with mobility limitations could be greatly enhanced and the time for all occupants to evacuate might be reduced. This report covers a study of human factors considerations related to the possible use of elevators for evacuations in fire emergencies. It covers the selection of the fundamental approach to organizing elevator evacuations for specific buildings; the coordination and direction of the evacuation; the decision-making, information and communication needs to permit a coordinated evacuation; and the documentation, manning and training requirements to permit a proper implementation of the fire emergency plan

Affordable fire safety in board and care homes - a regulatory challenge by N. E Groner ( Book )
2 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Costs of fire safety systems, such as sprinklers, can vary greatly, impeding a dialogue on the benefit-cost relationships of these systems. It appears that in some locations there are many homes that provide the services of Board and Care Homes but are not regulated
Affordable fire safety in board and care homes : a regulatory challenge : interim report by B. M Levin ( Book )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is an interim report on a project concerning fire safety in Board and Care Homes. Homes vary greatly in the level of disability of residents and financial resources of the residents. A major concern is the availability of satisfactory care for clients with limited funds. Meeting fire safety codes can mean an unaffordable capital cost to financially marginal providers who cannot borrow money. One focus of the study is the use of the provisions in the Life Safety Code. Many agencies use these requirements and find they lead to a high level of safety without excessive costs. All have developed or adopted a procedure for rating Evacuation difficulty that they find workable, and many find satisfactory. Other agencies use other requirements, sometimes more lenient and often more strict. Costs of fire safety systems, such as sprinklers, can vary greatly, impeding a dialogue on the benefit-cost relationships of these systems. It appears that in some locations there are many homes that provide the services of Board and Care Homes but are not regulated
