Fire Protection Research Foundation report: "A Literature Review of Emergency and
Non-Emergency Events”
Author: Minkyu Lee, Fire Protection Research Foundation
Date of issue: August 2012

Executive summary

NFPA 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.
