Behaviour in Emergencies

Growing out from his work on Environmental Psychology was David Canter’s exploration of people’s behaviour in fire and emergencies.

This led to a series of reports at the Fire Research Unit of the University of Surrey and to a study of the fatal King’s Cross Underground fire of 1987.
