Abstract: 

In today’s world of advanced technology, "nothing is safe" and the fear from painful disasters caused by job accidents always exists. Therefore, hospital preparation for probable accidents, such as fire, and providing safety for both the staff and the patients in these situations are vital necessities. This study aimed to evaluate the fire safety status and level of fire-awareness in the hospitals of Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, Shiraz, Iran. This cross–sectional study was conducted in two parts.1) Reviewing the fire-safety status in the hospitals of the university and 2) Evaluating the level of fire awareness among the hospital personnel. In evaluating the level of fire awareness, 520 subjects were selected among Radiology, Pharmacy, Laboratory, And Nursing stations staff. The fire-safety status was assessed using a checklist including 54 questions evaluating fire-safety and emergency exit pathways. In addition, a questionnaire including 12 questions was used in order to evaluate the level of fire awareness. The results revealed maximum and minimum fire-safety status in Namazi Hospital (mean=20.36) and Shooshtari Hospital (mean=16), respectively. In addition, the highest and the lowest levels of fire awareness were found in Qotbeddin Hospital (mean=5.85) and Sina Hospital (mean=3.35), respectively. Level of fire-awareness of the study population had association with educational level and job tenure.
