TopicHuman Behavior in Fire and the SFPE Guide 

Abstract -- When the SFPE Guide to Human Behavior in Fire was first published in 2003, it was considered a landmark publication that introduced the fire safety community to human behavior concepts. As a result of significant changes to the body-of-knowledge in the area of human behavior, the SFPE Human Behavior in Fire Task Group is currently updating this guide. This presentation will focus on some of the new topics proposed for this guide and will include a discussion on: Occupant Behavioral Scenarios, Managing the Movement of Building Occupants, Effects of Exposure to Smoke/Toxicity and Egress Model Selection.
