Emergency cases especially fire can cause catastrophic to people and property. The disaster that happened is like physical injury and mental health, death, loss of property and dwellings, such as offices, hotels, shopping malls, hospitals, schools and residential homes. Malaysian Fire and Rescue Department (FRD) said that most of the deaths in fires are due to the trapped by drowning. Trapped victims have only 60 seconds only to get out. Otherwise, they would have drowned and will burn to death. This disaster could be avoided if security measures to deal with fire practised appropriately and efficiently. Therefore, this project aims to design Automatic Fire Alert System for Residential Building. The objective of this project to design first alert system to improve the process used to detect fire or gases and provide early alert to victims and to design a Smoke Emission system, so victims have time to evacuate and reduce the panic caused by the smoke that fills the space. The system to be developed is expected could provide benefits to the parties involved as the project has reserved a systematic and efficient solution to reduce the number of deaths caused by trapping in fire.
