“Fire defense is a self defense. Kill Fire before it kills you. Fire loss is a national loss” 

Fire can be a threat to all of us at any time at any place, but taking simple precautions and being prepared can help to keep us safe. Fire Safety at workplace is must and it is the Employer’s responsibility to ensure the safety of personnel at place of work as they are the real assets of any organization. Fire Safety Training in the workplace provides a sense of preparedness for employees and adds to the overall health of the organization. There are many training programs to teach relevant up-to-date knowledge and awareness of potential emergencies in the workplace and to provide workers with the skills and confidence to deal with such situations. The knowledge and skills learnt by workers can prove invaluable in avoiding potential incidents. Employees can learn how to use emergency prevention equipment, operate emergency control equipment and correctly implement an emergency evacuation. Training can be modified specifically to organization’s needs, ensuring that fire teams and first response units have the most up-to-date and professionally accurate training possible. It also provides participants with the skills and knowledge to prevent and respond to emergency situations in the workplace. This is  ‘must’ for all organizations that want to equip their employees with the expert knowledge needed in a first response emergency situation.

The fire risk is based on human behavior and on the determinants of a safe evacuation of occupants during a fire. Many fires in buildings have shown that the behavior of occupants is important for the survival of a building fire. The concept of fire risk can be defined as the probability of a fire causing a loss of life (or injury) and/or damage to property. Human behavior is defined as actions that people take, based on the perception of the situation, the intentions for actions and the considerations before the actions are carried out. Occupants are in the first stage of a fire primarily thrown on their own resources or on those of surrounding people. The behavior of people in the first stage of a fire is the most determining factor for survival. An additional significant factor is the availability of fire safety measures, for example fire extinguishers and accessible escape routes. The assistance of professional emergency services, such as rescue operations conducted by firefighters and emergency treatment by paramedics, can only be provided just after the first, and most important, period of a fire.  The most crucial aspect of a building’s safety in the face of fire is the possibility of safe escape. An important precondition is that its fire safety facilities enable independent and adequate fire response performances by the building’s occupants; it appears that the measures currently required by law do not always provide the support that people in burning buildings need. Consequently, understanding how individuals behave in the case of fire and fire evacuation is essential if we are to bring fire safety measures into line with occupants needs during an incident. Human Behaviour in a fire so far as building safety is concerned as an overview of the critical factors which determine occupants fire response performances, namely the characteristics of fire, human beings and buildings.  Therefore, the possibility of surviving a fire is determined on the fire response performance of people.

I would like to end by offering my heartfelt deepest sympathies to all those who lost their loved ones in the various Fire Tragedies in and around the world and also to those who lost their near and dear ones in the ongoing Corona Virus, may god give the strength to their near and dear ones to overcome their loss.
