Abstract
This report aims to present a fire safety evaluation of Ward 043, Children & Youth, at Centralsjukhuset in Kristianstad. Based upon information acquired during a visit to the hospital on February the 8th, 2010, a number of analyses were carried out to assess the current fire safety. Fire- and evacuation simulations, along-side an index-method were the most important tools used in the evaluation. This report focuses on personal safety.
The simulated time for evacuation is compared with the time, according to the fire simulations, when critical conditions are reached. The results show that in two out of three scenarios, there is a present risk that not a single person had time to evacuate before critical conditions occurred. In the last... (More)
This report aims to present a fire safety evaluation of Ward 043, Children & Youth, at Centralsjukhuset in Kristianstad. Based upon information acquired during a visit to the hospital on February the 8th, 2010, a number of analyses were carried out to assess the current fire safety. Fire- and evacuation simulations, along-side an index-method were the most important tools used in the evaluation. This report focuses on personal safety.
The simulated time for evacuation is compared with the time, according to the fire simulations, when critical conditions are reached. The results show that in two out of three scenarios, there is a present risk that not a single person had time to evacuate before critical conditions occurred. In the last scenario, however, it was concluded that while there is a risk of exposure to critical conditions, there is a good possibility that all persons are successfully evacuated from the ward.
The results of the analyses were then used to establish measures to improve the fire safety in order to reach an acceptable level.
In revision of the initial analyses results, taking into consideration the recommended measures to be implemented, the simulations were completed once more. The results showed that, if these measures are implemented, the evacuations are likely to be carried out without anybody sustaining significant health repercussions. (Less)
