AbstractA joint research project was undertaken by the National Research Council of Canada (NRCC) and Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) to study evacuation drills in mid-rise apartment buildings with mixed abilities occupants. The study collected real data on time and movement during evacuation drills in four buildings. The buildings involved were located in Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. These different locations reflected provincial variations in fire safety procedures. Each fire drill was organized, supervised and carried out with the full participation of the local fire department.
