A Study of Emergency Lighting for the Dade County Board of Public Instruction.
Pancoast, Ferendino, Grafton and Skeels, Architects, Miami, FL.
Immediate installation of emergency lighting, in addition to that already provided, is recommended for three groups of existing schools--(1) air-conditioned schools and additions with compact plans having inside corridors and instructional areas artifically lighted, (2) senior high schools with adult education programs, and (3) community schools offering instructional programs to all age levels and using elementary, junior and senior high school plants. The need for additional provisions is based on the danger of panic in crowds when power fails due to causes outside of the building such as hurricanes, local storms, seasonal overloads, or national emergencies. Recommendations are given for providing emergency lighting systems independent of public utility service. (RH)
