Abstract

The purpose of the research was to develop a model of decision making in office building fire evacuations. Data was collected by means of a questionnaire and short film. The questionnaire contained separate fire scenarios that corresponded to the order of cue presentation in the film. For each fire scenario, participants in the study responded to 36 items. The items represented seven constructs of action (continue normal activities, investigate/seek further information, alert/warn others, protective procedures, wait for assistance, fight the fire and evacuate).
