The number of Fire accidents has been increased due to reckless building construction and nonconformities of different codes. So, at present urban cities have experienced many fire incidents. But insufficient equipment support and lack of public awareness are the main culprit of this situation to create more complex. This study will review the fire incidents throughout out the world and Bangladesh and also introduce the main components of firefighting systems of a tall building.
