Abstract

This paper briefly describes the methodologies employed in the
collection and storage of first-hand accounts of evacuation experiences
derived from face-to-face interviews with evacuees from the World Trade
Center (WTC) Twin Towers complex on 11 September 2001 and the
development of the High-rise Evacuation Evaluation Database (HEED). The
main focus of the paper is to present a preliminary analysis of data derived
from the evacuation of the North Tower.
