The NFPA Guideline to Developing Emergency Action Plans for All-Hazard Emergencies in High-Rise Office Buildings was developed in response to the need for guidance in preparing staff and occupants of high-rise office buildings for evacuation.

This presentation provides guidance for those responsible for planning, preparing and executing building evacuations, as well as provides information on various evacuation strategies that should be considered.

With the increased presence of both human-made and natural disasters, this presentation also encompasses an all-hazard approach applicable to both fire and all-hazard emergencies.

The presentation will address the criteria and the minimum information necessary to integrate proper evacuation components into a comprehensive evacuation planning strategy appropriate for occupants of a high-rise office building.
