Mohammed A. Saeefan – Saudi Arabian Oil Company


The lack of available data that can be used when conducting an evacuation analysis has been highlighted by a number of researchers over the past years. This has generated interest in bridging this gap by collecting pre-movement and movement times for impaired occupants, various occupancies and cultures. There have been limited efforts in examining existing data available in other scientific disciplines such medical journals. This paper provides a brief description of the current situations, data gaps and examples of available data collected from medical journals. It will also include a Pathfinder comparative analysis using data from non-FPE studies and the SFPE Handbook.
