With the population all across the world increasing at a rapid pace, the need for high-rise buildings is also on the rise. The number of high-rise buildings has grown manifold in the last few decades which still remain a continuing process. The safety and security of such tall buildings is a serious matter of concern. High-rise buildings are often prone to fire disasters. Fire related tragedies hit the headlines every now and then. Often the people residing or working in a tall building lose their life due to fire disasters, due to no fault of their own.
In order to save such victims, it is extremely essential for the high-rise buildings to have proper fire safety management in place. Nowadays, most of the high-rise towers contain sophisticated fire safety features. However it cannot be said that the building is totally secured in case of a fire outbreak. Carelessness, negligence and lack of fire safety knowledge are the main reasons behind such fire outbreaks and the death of a number of innocent people.
In order to have an effective fire management system for high-rise building, it is important to teach people about the fire safety methods and procedures. Educational and training programs pertaining to the fire safety measures help in providing knowledge to the people about the various aspects of a fire disaster and how to come out of it unscathed. Ensuring people do not panic during such circumstances is also essential. Keeping your mind cool and then deciding on how to deal with the outbreak is necessary. The flammable materials should be kept and stored in safe areas. Many fire disasters happen as such flammable materials are kept open where even a flicker results in a massive disaster. The high-rise buildings should also have proper signage for exit routes so as to help people out of the building quickly in case of such incidences.
