The latest Fire Protection Research Foundation is now available. The "Literature Review of Emergency and Non-Emergency Events" was authored by Minkyu Lee, of the Fire Protection Research Foundation.

NFPA 101NFPA 101, Life Safety Code®, contains information that is useful not only in fire related emergencies but also in non-fire emergencies and non-emergency situations. To better clarify the application of NFPA 101 to non-fire emergency and non-emergency situations, multiple applicable scenarios have been identified and summarized in this document. These incidents and documents were gathered to provide background information for the Technical Committees for NFPA 101 (and other documents), for the evaluation of the potential for non-fire-emergencies and non-emergency scenarios which include some form of individual and crowd dynamics.
