There are 15,400 high rise fires each year in the US according to NFPA. What anyone who lives or works in a high rise must know is that the most important thing to do during a fire is to get out as soon as possible. Especially in a High Rise because of the longer egress times. That may seem obvious, but did you know that less than 50% of the survivors surveyed after the Sept. 11th attacks on the WTC reported that they evacuated immediately? For more information on the behavior of the survivors during their evacuation of the World Trade Center Towers, read the report by Guylene Proulx. In this report she mentions the use of photoluminescent markings which proved helpful in the evacuation: "Four survivors reported seeing photoluminescent stripes on the stairs, railings and stairwell doors – an improvement the Port Authority made following the 1993 bombing. As one survivor stated, “All you had to do was follow those yellow-green stripes. They were wonderful. The stripes were especially valuable when the emergency stairs stopped and people had to travel horizontally through mechanical equipment spaces that had many doors” (Masetti, 2001)." Whether it’s a traditional low rise building or a skyscraper, whether occupant leave immediately or wait, it is imperative that they be able to see their way out. Jalite photoluminescent egress signs will light the way out for any building. Contact us to find a distributor near you.

In July of 2009, a fire broke out on the 9th floor of a 14-storey residency by the south of London. The fire quickly spread to the 11th floor where it took the lives of six residents. Weeks before the fire one of the victims had asked why there were no diagrams in the building to show where the emergency exits were. Those who perished in the fire had remained in their flat, but those who did escape the blaze described the scene as being “chaotic” and said that the maze-like layout of the building made evacuation extremely difficult. Why weren’t evacuation plans installed within the large, 14-storey building? An inquiry into the answer of that question began on January 14, 2013. The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) released an article on their site that describes how to stay safe if you are in a tall building. The number one tip? Know the plan. The article says, “Make sure that you're familiar with your building's evacuation plan, which should illustrate what residents are supposed to do in the event of an emergency.” These all important diagrams were unfortunately absent from too many tragedies. Ensure that the occupants and staff in your facility stay safe and “know the plan.” Contact JALITE today to find out how you can install photoluminescent evacuation plans to identify the way out in both a light and dark emergency. With JALITE evacuation plans you can rest assured that - When the lights go out, ours go on™.
Fire safety equipment can vary from one facility to another depending on regulation, but for sure the risks in case of fire is common to them all. A commitment to safety from fire is one that incorporates the right safety equipment such as fire alarms, fire hoses, fire extinguishers, or full fire suppression systems matched to the risk. Regardless of which safety measure is in place at your facility, each requires providing the occupants with information in the event of a fire. Information as basic as where the equipment is located to information as sophisticated as what type of fire can be fought, or when and how to evacuate an area during an emergency. This information can be critical to saving lives. JALITE offers a wide range of standard fire safety signs so you can be confident that the required message can be communicated and with our high brightness material you can be sure it will be communicated when it’s needed – lights on or off! That’s right, in a fire, the potential for a loss of power is high as well as the obscuring of light due to smoke, so take a fire safety tip from JALITE, use JALITE photoluminescent fire safety signs to identify your fire safety equipment and inform your occupants on what to do in the event of a fire.
