Emergency Egress Standards Film
OSU, the oldest fire safety academic program in North America, will design and produce a film, suitable for instructional use, on emergency building egress system design. Working closely with the OSU Institute for Teaching and Learning Excellence, which supports the creation of state-of-the-art instructional technology, the film will introduce students in a creative way to the challenges of egress design while emphasizing specific aspects of documentary standards that contribute to safe building egress.
The Emergency Egress Standards Film is available on YouTube:

Understanding the Significance of Standards in Fire Protection and Related Fields
To design and produce a series of short videos on the importance of standards and codes to mitigating the risk of fire to the built environment. These new learning resources will describe the standards development process and the applications of codes and standards to fire safety and the relationship of standards and codes. The videos will address product standards, installation and maintenance standards, and model building codes. The videos are intended to be used in undergraduate, graduate, professional development, and continuing education programs.
