ASSESSMENT Fire safety education effectively contribute to reducing fire incidents in the UK Fire and Community Safety The total cost of a fire to a community is huge as it includes the direct toll of life and injury and the actual financial losses caused by fire. Moreover, it also includes the indirect or consequential effects due to disruption of facilities, loss of trade, employment, anxiety, and inconvenience. Community safety is any form of health promotion including the prevention of fires and it works best when coordinated at the local community level.

The term ‘ community safety’ also presents a positive goal, rather than merely preventing negative events. In literature, the injury prevention of aspect of community focuses on unintentional injuries caused by vehicular and pedestrian accidents, poisons, falls, and fires because safety is recognized as a fundamental right and a basic precondition for individual and community health and well-being, economic and social development, peace and justice, and realization of higher aspirations (Whitzman 2008, p. 13). Our report focus is to identify an effective method to reduce the number of injuries and fatalities because of fires in temporary high-rise housing that are still under construction.

It will discuss and identify the problems using the SARA methodology and conclude with an evaluation of fire prevention strategies.
