We are running focus groups which will be looking at residents thoughts and understanding about fire safety guidance in multi-story buildings.
We are simply trying to capture residents’ understanding and perspectives on current fire safety guidance, specifically on evacuations and what to do in the event of a fire. The focus group should last between 45 minutes and 1 hour and will be conducted online.
If you agree to partake in the study you will be compensated with a £15 gift voucher of your choice, for participating in the focus group. Your participation will be a valuable addition to our research, and could lead to a greater understanding of public evacuation behaviour. With this research, we hope to improve our understanding of public response in evacuations, and facilitate safe, clear, inclusive evacuation guidance for high-rise buildings.
