Introduction

Fire is a serious hazard to life and property in any environment. It is essential therefore that all premises are provided with appropriate fire safety precautions, training and equipment. All personnel using any facility must be made thoroughly aware of the importance of fire safety measure and take part in regular drills and training to ensure they understand their responsibilities, not only for themselves, but also for the safety of others. People themselves are the most common cause of fire through arson, carelessness, ignorance or thoughtlessness resulting in major hazards to life and limb, not only to themselves but others as well.
