Safe Destination Sites are predetermined safe areas that occupants must go to in order to receive information from officials, and remain a safe distance from the building. The Safe Destination Site will be far enough away to prevent injury related to explosions or broken glass in the event of a fire. Safe Destination Sites are chosen based on key evacuation performance criteria such as building layout, occupant load and occupant behavior during an evacuation to ensure the most effective building evacuation possible.
