Understanding fire safety
Fire safety involves a variety of measures aimed at preventing fires and preparing for emergencies to mitigate risks and safeguard lives and property. This includes measures such as fire prevention, early detection through alarm systems, availability of appropriate firefighting tools, establishment of evacuation procedures, consideration of building design, education initiatives, and access to emergency services. 

The goal is to minimize the likelihood of fire-related incidents and ensure a prompt and secure response in the event of a fire.
