Abstract

Fire on building is a major problem in Indonesia. To assess fire safety, a qualitative research has been conducted in elementary schools in DKI Jakarta. Three state elementary schools (SDNs) in South Jakarta (i.e. SDN Pondok Labu 11 Pagi, SDN Pondok Labu 12 Pagi, and SDN Pondok Labu 15 Pagi) and two SDNs in East Jakarta (i.e. SDN Kramat Jati 16 Pagi and SDN Kramat Jati 18 Pagi) were selected purposively as samples. Four regulated
fire safety components (i.e. fire protection system, fire truck access, life safety system, and Building Fire Safety Management) were assessed qualitatively by interviewing responsible persons and observing all fire safety components. It was found that in all the SDNs there were no fire protection
system such as portable fire extinguisher and hydrant available and no life safety system has been implemented including emergency phone number, assembly point, emergency lamp, as well as safety signs. However, there were three SDNs (i.e. SDN Pondok Labu 11 Pagi, SDN Kramat Jati 16 Pagi, and SDN Kramat Jati 18 Pagi) had fire truck access to schools, but all SDNs had only 2 to 4 exit doors. In all SDNs, Building Fire Safety Management has not been implemented. It is concluded that the fire safety in elementary schools was very bad as almost all the four components of the fire safety have not been completely implemented.
