AbstractEvacuation drills can be canied out as a means to educate the public about the evacuation procedure for a specific building. Drills can also be conducted to obtain data on the occupants' behaviour, movement and timing of escape. In the latter case the results of the drill can be used to develop computer models such as the National Research Council of Canada's FiRECAM® which can assess the risk to life and the cost of different fire safety features. The methodology used in conducting evacuation drills is essential to obtain meaningful and reliable data.
