Despite having adequate fire protection systems installed in buildings, risk of fire remains the greatest and most serious threat to a community's health and safety, as well as its properties. In order to ensure that the safety of the building and its occupants, the basic features are determined by the fire protection system and equipment, which all must comply to the standard requirements. Nonetheless, raising fire safety awareness could help to reduce the mortality rate or damages in the event of a fire. This research presents the results on the investigation of fire safety awareness among occupants in high rise building. The endeavour of this study is to explore the level of fire safety knowledge of the occupants in high rise building. According to the study, public awareness is strongly linked to an understanding of human personality and behavioral background. The respondents’ levels of awareness are rather low, which indicates their weak response when confronted with a fire emergency. Participation in relevant fire safety programmes, distribution of fire safety pamphlets or brochures, and appointing specific personnel for the building's Emergency Response Team are the most important strategies identified for raising fire safety awareness and effectiveness.
