Fire Safety Manager (FSM) is a person/team who provides required services to prevent a premise from
fire hazard. And, in case of fire accident the FSM takes necessary action to mitigate the causalities at
Every year fire causes a great damage to the building owners. This results in damage to human
resources, loosing customer faith and financial loss. So, we have to avoid such incidents at any cost. It is
the fact that, prevention is always better than cure. Hence, we can avoid injuries to human resources,
expensive damages and potential fines by developing a fire prevention and awareness system.
Moreover, maintaining such system is not optional is Singapore. The Singaporean government is very
much cautious about the fire safety of the country buildings. Thereof, the government has launched the
Fire Safety Manager (FSM) Scheme. This law aims to maintain the fire safety standard for the buildings.
Here, fire safety events and fire avoidance procedures are demonstrated through the FSM. This results
in increase of fire safety awareness for the building residents.
There are few basics to be maintained by every premise to mitigate the risk of fire hazard of the
building. Such as:
Ready the fire extinguisher: Fire extinguisher is an entry level fire defense device. It is worthy for
extinguishing or controlling entry level fires. Though it is very useful in the emergency situation; but, if
the fire goes out of control then it requires the skill of a Fire Safety Manager. The in-charge of building
safety must be familiar of the location of the fire extinguishers. Just keeping a note or map is not
enough; have to know the exact location and have to have training that, how to reach there in an
emergency situation. Moreover, only keeping a fire extinguisher is not sufficient. Consequently, users
have to ensure that the extinguisher is working efficiently. It is also a job of FSM to check the fire
extinguisher including its pressure gauge to confirm this device will work at the time of requirement.
Ready Emergency Evacuation Plan: Every premise should have a backup exit for all inhabitants. And, also
it is vital to maintain an emergency exit light at all levels. Moreover, an indicating light has to be
functional to map the exit. This system will ensure minimizing the losses for the most valuable
resources, human resource. Also, the occupants of these premises should have proper knowledge about
this plan. It is a job of Fire Safety Manager to train the people for such situation.
Arrange regular fire drill: In every case, practice makes perfect. A fire drill is a rehearsal of the
emergency actions to be used if fire occurrences happen. So, building safety in-charge has to arrange
fire drill to train the occupants of the premise in the proper method. FSM has to arrange a fire drill at
least once in a year. It will ensure that the inhabitants are ready to do what they have to in case of fire.
Such drills can save lives if incident occurs.
By maintaining these strategies the premises owner can safeguard the facility and employees to be safe
from fire hazard primarily. As the fire is a very sensitive case, it should be handled with utmost care.
Here comes the role of a Fire Safety Manager (FSM). FSM’s job is to ensure that, the necessary measure
including above mentioned are maintained properly. To get a quality protection of premises from fire
hazard, trustworthy Fire Safety Manager Services are required.
