AbstractThis research project is a joint study between fire safety researchers at the Institute for Research in Construction of the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) and the Société de transport de la communauté urbaine de Montréal (STCUM). The objective of this project was to collect information on the passengers' use of the Butterfly Door for evacuation. To obtain a complete spectrum of information, it was decided to study the daily use of the Butterfly Door, its use with a large crowd of people and its use during two evacuation drills.
