International Study of Sublethal Effects of Fire Smoke on Survivability and Health
Richard G. Gann
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 considerat0ion 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.
