|Title:||A Research Program to Determine When and How to Include Sublethal Effects of Smoke in Fire Safety Decisions|
|Published:||March 07, 2000|
|Abstract:||It has long been realized that the sublethal effects of smoke can affect survival in fires, but only sparse data were available on which to base fire safety decisions. A recent draft standard under consideration in the International Standards Organization Committee on Fire Safety has prompted an industry/government consortium to conduct research on the role of sublethal effects of smoke in evaluating building and/or product fire safety. This paper outlines the components of this high visibility and high potential impact study with the intent of informing FRCA members and soliciting their input into the formulation of the project.|
