Evacuation Failure Records
Hello there,
I would like to find records for evacuation failures, and/or most common mistakes in evacuation plan and progress.
IN other words, i would like to find records of usual sources of evacuation fails or mistakes.

Thank you in advance
Tassos Kallianiotis

Hi Tassos,

If you haven't already, I think the first step would be to clearly state what your definition of 'evacuation failure' is. I'm not sure I understand your description:

Quote:

most common mistakes in evacuation plan and progress.

No/few evacuations are perfect and all have some failings.

I think looking at some of the well known evacuation disasters (i.e. the most well documented) for specific failings would be the good place to start. Indeed these are often well known either because of the magnitude of the disaster or the extent to which a 'failure' in one form or another has occurred.

Good luck!

OK, the main subject is to learn which is the weakest point of evacuation success. What i mean is, when an evacuation starts, there are several steps to complete in order to evacute any occupants safely. Such as lack ofcommunication, wrong occupant counting, obstacles on evacuation routes etc. So, i would like to know if there are records that show the most common problems, mistakes, failures (whatever), that may drive an evacuation to fail or to delay.
