Fire Safety Research Institute Releases ‘Plan Your Escape: High-Rise Apartment Fire’ Video

The Fire Safety Research Institute released a new video as part of our Fire Prevention Week: Fire Moves Fast. Plan Ahead to Save Lives series.

The “Plan Your Escape: High-Rise Apartment Fire” video combines our real research footage with 3D modeling to show fire growth and spread throughout an apartment, the hallway, and the stairwell, showing what can happen when doors are left open.

As we know, without closed doors, potential exit routes can be blocked by smoke within minutes. Following the many high-profile, high-rise fires this year resulting in many injuries and deaths, this is a pivotal time to ensure the public knows what to do whether there is a fire in their home or somewhere else in their building.

Utilize this video along with our Fire Escape Plan Guide to help your community create and practice their own fire escape plan A, B, and C (for when they cannot escape). Next in the series, we will highlight a garden-style apartment and a two-story, single-family home.
