Abstract

After studying NFPA 101 and 101A, a simplified inspection checklist for the components of a total exit system in hospitals and schools was created with an additional explanatory document for the Cuerpo de Bomberos de Costa Rica. Formulas calculating theoretical evaluation times and static and dynamic capacities were also developed and implemented into the checklist. Personnel preparation for emergencies, fire safety education, and political aspects of implementing the checklist were examined. Finally, recommendations based on on-site inspections were given.
