    possibilities of preventing fires. It can be defined as the art and science of
    designing buildings and facilities for life safety and property protection in
    the event of an unwanted fire. This includes the application of scientific and
    engineering principles, based on an understanding of the phenomena and effects
    of fire and of reaction and behaviour of people, property and the environment as
    well as the impact of fire protection systems including detection, alarm and
    sprinkler systems. Fire Engineering is becoming world’s one of the noblest
    profession by virtue of its growing role in saving life and property.
    Fire Engineering is a very dangerous profession which requires a strong sense of
