To survive a fire, occupants of a building have to be able to evacuate the structure before the situation becomes unsustainable. Evacuation time is thus a critical factor, but lack of knowledge about the basics of fire safety can dangerously increase this time and also result in various forms of unsafe behavior. In this paper, we propose serious games as a tool to acquire personal fire safety skills, also discussing a specific game we have developed.
