    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.
