Jefferson National Memorial Historial Site Analysis of Impact of Fire Safety Features (NBSIR 84-2897)
Harold E. Nelson
This report discusses the application of specific fire safety features and their impact on visitor safety. It is the product of a unique effort in intergovernmental cooperation. The report demonstrates the direct benefits of the National Bureau of Standards, Center for Fire Research program as implemented at specific facilities. We are especially pleased with this combined effort which was aimed at utilizing these concepts. In particular, this information has been useful to National Park Service management for application at Jefferson National Expansion Memorial (JNEM). The result is a better understanding of both the technical research and of its direct, practical benefits. Because of this joint effort, the National Park Service will be able to safely accommodate additional visitors at JNEM for relatively low additional costs. This permits the Service to apply fire safety features in the most cost-effective manner with a clear assurance of their effectiveness.
