14. General Guidance on Emergency Communication Strategies for Buildings, 2nd Edition
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1827
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/14/2014
Authors: Erica D Kuligowski, Hidemi Omori
Abstract: When a building emergency occurs, it is not always sufficient to simply initiate alarm bells. Individuals may not know what the alarm bell means and as a result may respond inappropriately to its sound. Many buildings have installed mass notificat ...
