Abstract: The Real Time Environments that are very difficult and dangerous to practice can be simulated using Virtual Reality (VR) and canbe used as a learning tool. The use of immersive VR supports to demonstrate the three dimensional virtual environment in detail and helps the user to learn about the concepts of fire hazards and practice escape mechanisms in fire surrounded situations. A game like interface techniques is used for VR fire-safety training interaction in order to improve motivation for learning and were encouraged to explore the virtual world. People interact with objects and navigate through environment that are virtually present with full control using a VR controller which gives a feel of an active user. The identification of few fire hazards circumstances at home and office environments are performed based on which a similar virtual environment is designed to practice fire safety and escape techniques.A PASS training for fire extinguishers was included as a core concept of the project. PASS stands for Pull, Aim, Squeeze and Sweep while using a fire extinguisher. Knowing these techniques in times of trouble could be really helpful and mandatory.
