  1. I know everyone in this video, the hospital that they are using is Hartford Hospital in Hartford CT, in 1962 Hartford Hospital suffered a tremendous loss when a fire broke out on the 8th floor of the hospital. The NFPA since then has used the hospital in a new safety video every 10 years.

  2. Regarding 3:41.. Is this still the evacuation procedure for bed-bound patients in most care facilities?

  3. In case of horizontal evacuation, it's pretty dangerous to move the beds from one department to another department. It can cause huge blockades in the corridors. What happens if a big fire would spread and more departments require evacuation, it would mean that loads of corridors are fully blocked with hospital beds? This can have detrimental effects…

  4. 0:30 and 4:31 – It's pretty ironic (or maybe cool) that the guy is actually working on a fire alarm notification appliance.

  5. Seems a little disappointing that at least 2 of the 4 firefighters that stepped out of the stairwell didn't have their flash hood pulled while wearing their face piece in an NFPA video. Good education for hospital staff, though.

  6. Ret. Fire Inspector find this short video to be a vital source of information for Healthcare employees!!
