||Successful evacuation of a building depends on early detection of a fire and timely and convincing communication to occupants about the location of the fire and its size and spread. These two requirements for increasing life safety can be met by computer-based Informative Fire Warning Systems (IFWS). This Technical Note reviews briefly research carried out in the United Kingdom on IFWS and the basic features desirable in such fire detection systems.
