|Safe evacuation for all - In cultural buildings|
Improving evacuation safety for people with activity limitations is not an insurmountable problem, not even when converting buildings of great cultural value.
Safe Evacuation for All deals with such important concepts as accessibility
and personal safety. In the preservation of architecturally valuable buildings
attention also has to be paid to cultural values and architectural considerations.
Different people have differing opinions about the nature of risk. This
book contains a presentation of how people behave in the event of fire
and other hazardous situations. Evacuation drills indicate which requirements
must be met if people with activity limitations are to be able to evacuate.
The main author is the architect Elena Siré, SAR/MSA and the co-authors
are Staffan Bengtson, M.Eng. and the psychologist Lena Kecklund.
