Human Behaviour in Fires (HBiF)
The Working Group in Human Behaviour in Fires (HBiF) aims to be a coordinating body that monitors, develops and guides research on all aspects of the broad discipline of human behaviour in fire. The primary objective of the HBiF WG is to achieve measurable, positive impacts on life safety of people in building and outdoor fires, avoid duplication in research efforts across the world and present a unified representative voice for researchers in the field.
The HBIF WG foresees a number of activities to help achieve its objectives. These include developing a template for HBiF data collection and reporting, developing guidelines for ethical research when studying HBiF, developing a research roadmap for the discipline of HBiF, developing and/or expand upon authoritative guidelines for verification and validation (V&V) of computer evacuation models, and developing a glossary of terms for HbiF.
A key goal of the HbiF WG is to communicate within and outside of the IAFSS on these important topics and has developed a webinar series and will be using this website to help in this regard. Want to become involved? Membership in the HbiF WG is open to all members of the IAFSS. Interested? Join the HbiF WG and learn more!
