Guide for communicating emergency response information for natural gas and hazardous liquids pipelines by Charles R Jennings( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"TRB's Hazardous Materials Cooperative Research Program (HMCRP) Report 14: Guide for Communicating Emergency Response Information for Natural Gas and Hazardous Liquids Pipelines provides guidance on responding to a pipeline emergency. Report appendices are available on the project website."--Publisher description
A guide to board and care fire safety requirements in the 1991 edition of the Life safety code by N. E Groner( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 11 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 page
Affordable fire safety in board and care homes : a regulatory challenge, final report by B. M Levin( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 9 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
Feasibility of fire evacuation by elevators at FAA control towers by John H Klote( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 9 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 for the potential use of elevators for fire evacuation of FAA air traffic control towers by B. M Levin( Book )

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 : interim report by B. M Levin( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 3 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
Feasibility and design considerations of emergency evacuation by elevators by Daniel M Alvord( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout most of the world, warning signs next to elevators indicate they should not be used in fire situations and today's elevators have not been designed for fire evacuation and should not be used for fire evacuation. However, the idea of using elevators to speed up fire evacuation and to evacuate persons with disabilities has gained considerable attention. The potential of elevator evacuation is so significant that the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has sponsored a research project at NIST to develop techniques for occupant use of elevators during building evacuations. This paper is the final report of that project, and it addresses fundamental system considerations, engineering design considerations, design analysis, and human behavior

An evaluation of the federal high rise emergency evacuation procedures by N. E Groner( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report evaluates the fire alarm systems at the General Services Administration (GSA) high-rise buildings. The contractors evaluated the degree of effectiveness of the various types of GSA fire alarm emergency communication systems. The findings highlighted the need for frequent system tests of the hardware, periodic training of occupants in emergency response, and improvement of the operation and function of the emergency management organization. Both voice type and bell type fire alarm systems were evaluated
