Fire is one of the simplest forms of energy known to man, Ever since man learnt to use it,it has been used for a variety of purpose. In the early days it was used to safeguard one from cold, as a source of light and as a medium of cooking food. Today, we see fire being used for a number of purposes. However, fire, like many other boons, is hazardous. This necessitates due care in its use. Invaluable lives are lost every year due to inadvertent fires. Similarly, property worth crores of rupees is destroyed by uncontrolled fire incidents. A number of industrial units suffer huge losses due to fire. Hence, it is necessary to understand the mechanism of fire and methods of prevention of losses from it, for the safe working of any industry. The analysis of major fires, which break out in office type buildings, the main causes finally identified, were due to electrical short circuit / overheating of electrical equipment and open flame / unextinguished smoking materials. In industrial buildings, in addition to these sparks due to electricity / impact / friction and poor housekeeping are also identified as causes of major fire hazards. So while planning the fire prevention measures for any occupancy it is necessary to study in details the possibilities of fire due to all these sources and the preventive measures required. At last we know the fact that many valuable lives and crores of rupees of material are lost in fire accidents in all over the world. This has created demand of trained fire safety engineering and fighters. This has also created wide business potential as well as growth in overall fire protection industry as a whole. Overall, the demand for highly trained Fire Protecting Engineers CFESM presenting fire and safety engineering courses to train students and promote knowledge of fire and safety engineering to join the new profession.
