Building evacuation strategies are a critical element in high-rise building fire safety. Research to date has focused on elevators and exit stairs; however there is a need to apply this research to relocation and evacuation systems which may include combinations of these two exit strategies as well as new egress components such as sky bridges for tall buildings. The Fire Protection Research Foundation has undertaken a project with Lund University to study possible improvements to life safety of tall buildings through an investigation of occupant relocation and evacuation strategies involving the use of exit stairs, elevators, sky bridges, and combinations thereof.
