CAUSES OF FIRES IN
HOSPITALS
Hospitals have a lot of things that could easily start
fires. If people are not careful, these fires can be very
dangerous. Some common reasons fires start in
hospitals include:
• Electrical faults – Faulty wiring, overloaded
circuits, defective appliances and other electrical
issues account for around 15-20% of hospital fires.
Fires can start from sparks in wiring, short
circuits, overheated appliances etc.

FIRE SAFETY REGULATIONS
AND CODES
India has detailed rules and guidelines for fire safety in
hospitals and healthcare places. The main rules come
from the National Building Code of India (NBC), which
includes fire safety measures for both new and old
buildings.
The NBC fire safety regulations cover various aspects like
construction materials, egress requirements, detection
and suppression systems, fire separation, etc. Some
important provisions include:

STRUCTURAL FIRE PROTECTION
Hospitals have unique structural fire protection needs compared to other buildings
due to the presence of patients who may have limited mobility. Key aspects of
structural fire protection in hospitals includeThe fire alarm system should report
back to a control panel that shows the origin and status of the alarm. A central
station should monitor this panel and notify the fire department of any alarm event.
The panel can also control features like emergency ventilation shutdown, elevator
recalls, and door unlocks.
ELECTRICAL AND
POWER SAFETY
Safe Electrical Wiring and Maintenance
• All electrical wiring should be installed and
maintained by certified electricians as per
national electrical code standards. Wiring
should be checked regularly for damage and
replaced when needed.
• Avoid overloading circuits with too many
appliances. Dedicated circuits should be
installed for major equipment.
