In recent years, there were several incidents of fire in schools in Malaysia. Fire-related coincidences often result in injuries and sometimes death, which can be prevented through fire safety training. Fire safety education is essential to every student on campus. Fire safety knowledge learning and operational practice are both important. The aspect of fire safety awareness is proven inadequate. This study focused on the importance of Fire Safety Knowledge in proposing a fire safety awareness program in Malaysia. For this study, 30% out of the total number student and staff was selected as the sample population. The two main objectives of the study were to identifiy the level of fire safety knowledge of students and staff in regard to emergency response; and proposed a fire safety awareness training program.
