             The fire services are called as the fourth line of National defense. The Govt. of India has nomenclature the fire services as “Fire & Emergency Services” and designated as the first responders in case of any emergency. As per the National Disaster Management Act 2005, which is adopted by various states, the strengthening of fire services is under taken by many states so that they can respond to any Manmade or Natural Disaster.  The main role of fire service is divided into two parts one is Fire Prevention and another is Fire Protection. The Fire Prevention is achieved by implementing fire prevention engineering at the planning stage of any building. This includes the selection of plot or location of building, approach roads for the plot, surrounding activities of the plot to limit the exposure hazards. Then building planning such as type of occupancy, fire rating of construction, travel distance, occupant load, number of exits, refuge area, width of passages and staircases, pressurization of lifts, Lift lobbies and staircases, use of material for carrying out interiors of the building, fire doors, fire dampers in artificial ventilation, natural cut out  for ventilation etc. The Fire Protection comprise alerting the management and occupant of the building also it will helps to fight the fire before arrival of fire service.
