Present master's thesis deals with the fire safety analysis of the newly built elementary school in municipality of Ivančna Gorica. Most frequent reasons for fire in schools are flawed electrical wiring, uncontrolled maintenance work, or intentional arson, which can be caused unintentionally by children during their playtime. The existing fire safety study for elementary school in Zagradec was made according to the technical guideline TSG-1-001:2010: Požarna varnost v stavbah (TSG). This, in the master's thesis for comparison study is made according to the German guideline Musterbauordnung (MBO). The first part of the thesis presents the general rules for conducting a fire safety study for buildings intended for education, according to the German MBO guidelines. These include the measures for preventing the fire from expanding over the building and to neighbouring buildings, measures for adequate level of structures fire resistance, rules for emergency exit routes, automatic fire alarm systems and fire extinguishing devices, and design of safe and adequate access routes to the building for intervention units. Next, a fire safety study on the discussed building is conducted, according to the MBO guidelines. The third part of the thesis presents some differences, which appeared between the existing, TSG-guided fire safety study and the fire safety study done according to the German guidelines. In the last part of the thesis results of numerical analyses for chosen fire scenarios, made in the Pyrosim software, and suitable emergency evacuation, analysed in the Pathfinder software are presented. The results demonstrate the ability of a numerical simulations to sufficiently predict and design the emergency exit routes. Additionally, these findings can be taken into account in the organisational fire-safety measures rules.
