Emergency Response and Evacuation
Evacuating students and the general public from campus spaces can be a significant challenge. This is especially true for events that may compromise, or make unavailable, a portion of the code-compliant egress routes from the facility.
Predictive computer modeling can provide a useful tool for predicting evacuation times during events and can help to identify architectural features or event usage features that can lengthen evacuation times, cause congestion conditions, or otherwise adversely impact evacuation. This webinar will look at evacuation during a number of different types of emergency conditions.
What we will cover:
- Ensuring rapid evacuation on campus
- Optimizing security hardware
- Modeling and interpreting occupant flow through entrances/exits
- Developing fire safety plans and mass notification systems
