P. M. Karake | Dr. G. S. Kulkarni [3]


Abstract: India is a developing country with lot of infrastructure and communication system. There are large amount of heavy structures which contribute to provide employment to lot of people in the metropolitan as well as Cosmo metropolitan cities. In such cities which contribute a lot of public buildings are planned and designed to fit the purpose they served, but there is no such evidence that these structures may or may not be designed as per the requirement of fire safety. The proper planning according to fire resistant construction means providing compartmentation, means of escape for occupants and means of access for fire fighters. The objectives of such planning and construction are to reduce the accidental fire by using fire proof materials and techniques and guidelines in IS codes. Even if fire occurs then small amount of heat should be liberated. The spread of fire should be slow and it confined within space of origin without affecting adjacent places. And the building structure should be able to stand for some time so that occupants can evacuate. This paper aims to study fire and safety for every Educational building. Nobody cares for fire safety for many years. Intensity of fire is depending on the amount of combustibles and the number of people staying inside the building. Some important points related to fire & safety of public buildings is focused in this paper
