Smart Fire Safety: Serious Game for Fire Safety Awareness

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 701)

Abstract

Serious game is used as an educational tool to teach about some complex actions in the real world. Serious game helps to visualize different situations which the learner has not experienced in real life. Fire accidents are occurring generally due to careless handling of flammable substances. From the analysis of experiments, we understood that most of the people did not get any training on fire and safety. The objective of this study is to give proper guidance and training to handle fire. This can be implemented through a serious game with some alert messages. This paper proposes to create awareness about fire risks that can happen in different scenarios through a serious game. This game focuses on common people. This game will provide an experience to the player.
