Jagnarine, S., Van Alphen, D., Gibbs, T., et al. (2018). Hospitals Don't Burn!: Hospital Fire Prevention and Evacuation Guide. World Health Organization, and Pan American Health Organization.
This guidance document was developed to address the vulnerability of hospitals to fires. It is intended that all possible steps should be taken to minimize the hazard of fires in hospitals and the need for evacuation. The guide is applicable to existing hospitals that can be retrofitted to improve safety against fires, and proposed new-build facilities. It is formatted into four sections: Prevention, Suppression, Evacuation, and Training Drills.
