Abstract


Healthcare buildings, require special arrangements in two separate areas like to ensure the evacuation strategy depends on the users mobility and including measures that can be taken against places of high risk of fire, in the step of providing fire safety. Unfortunately, there aren’t adequate regulations taking place for places of high fire risk and evacuation strategies of patients in the "Regulation on Fire Protection in Buildings’  in Turkey. But, NFPA standards (National Fire Protection Association, USA) and International Building Standards used in the UK "Building Regulations", UK.) contained related issues of regulations.  In this working it is aimed to complete of the weaknesses in our regulations as a result of comparing the regulations of N.F.P.A. and B.R with fire safety regulations of Turkey and to ensure the fire safety of buildings in the best way in this direction. It is believed that  the losses  and occurance of fire can be decreased by organizing of special measures relating to patient evacuation and risky places
