    With buildings spreading wings both horizontally and vertically upward even up to height of 200 metre to accommodate more habitat, it increases the fire risks & hazards. Fire prevention is the proactive method of reducing emergencies and the damage caused by fires. There are several factors on which fire prevention techniques are based.

    The objective is to spread awareness about fire safety and the precautions to be taken to prevent potentially harmful fires and how to survive them. Thus, provisions for fire protection of buildings are required. The revised NBC incorporates the necessary fire prevention provisions for life safety.
