Blog Post created by mikehazell Employee on May 13, 2014

At this year's NFPA Conference and Expo in Las Vegas, the Foundation, along with NFPA and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), will host a research planning workshop for human behavior in fire related to occupant evacuation in fires and similar emergencies.  The goal of the workshop will be to develop a research roadmap for this topic.  The focus will be on the practitioner's specific data and information needs for egress system design and simulation of evacuations.  The information gathered will directly inform the research plan.  

The session is Tuesday, June 10 from 11am to 12:30pm in Lagoon GH.  This session is open to anyone registered for the conference.  If you have any questions or need more information, please contact Amanda Kimball (akimball@nfpa.org) at the Foundation.
