|Title:||Fire Evacuation by Elevators|
|Published:||June 01, 1993|
|Abstract:||There is a rising concern for the safety of persons from fire who cannot travel building emergency exit routes in the same manner or as quickly as expected of able persons. One proposed solution for providing safety for these people is the use of elevators. However, today's elevators are not intended as means of fire egress and they should not be used for fire evacuation.|
