ADA National Network Learning Session: Accessible Means of Egress/Emergency Evacuation

Event Date/Time: 

Thursday, February 11th, 2016
11:30 AM PST - 1:00 PM PST




This program will introduce you to the concepts, details and application of the International Building Code (IBC) provisions for accessible means of egress that are now referenced in the federal design regulations and will be required for all new construction.  The webinar will help you understand how the codes and federal regulations are now working to harmonize the national response to designing a building not only for ingress, but for egress as well. Discussions will include operational safety plans, fire drills, notification/communication for occupants in a building during the emergency, and physical building requirements.

Learning objectives:

  • Determine what is considered when preplanning for emergencies.
  • Recognize how people are informed about emergency routes and the need for emergency evacuations.
  • Identify the elements of the accessible means of egress routes and where they are required.


Kimberly Paarlberg is a Senior Staff Architect in Technical Services with the International Code Council (ICC).
