Because the path of egress often continues outside a building to a public way, codes may require emergency lighting outside the building itself. Partially protected locations (canopies, stairwells, etc.) and interior locations (outdoor parking structures, cold storage facilities, etc.) indirectly exposed to moisture or humidity are considered damp locations. These special areas require emergency lighting specifically rated for damp locations.
