"Evacuation from Fires, Volume II" in this important new series was developed because of the fundamental importance of removing occupants from harm's way during building fires and the need to demonstrate new analytical techniques and tools for the design and evaluation of exit requirements during fire emergencies. The corollary issue of elevator transport for evacuation and fire fighter use during fire emergencies is also discussed in this volume.
