Abstract: The building managers and the whole building users, including the tenants of apartments, need to have an awareness of the danger of fire. The increase of the awareness of the whole building users will automatically increase the safety level of the building on the danger of fire. The awareness might increase if there are good examples that the building users can follow or if there are strong penalties imposed by the building managers or the law enforcement for violations. A simple instrument to control the evacuation route in the apartment was developed to increase the awareness of the danger of fire and to assist the efforts to mitigate fire disaster. The instrument in the form of a daily assessment was created using a simple table checklist for an easy use. The number and the locations of the instrument may vary depending on the characteristics of each building. The daily assessment may be used in buildings with a high risk of fire and as a means of evaluation and reporting.
