Background and aims:Today one of the most important issues in organizations, companies, offices and schools is that people should know how to turn off the fires in emergency situation. Certainly knowing about fire factors and safety in workplaces can reduce the costs of fire accidents, and in this study our goal is to determine the knowledge level of students related to methods of fire control.
Methods:In this study 280 students were randomly selected from different colleges of Zanjan University of Medical Sciences. The questionnaire was used to gather data and the obtained data were analyzed using SPSS (ver11).
Results:The results show that only about 22/5 % of students have relevant information that they get it from schools and other about 75% don’t have enough knowledge about fire. Studies show that there is no relation between knowledge, age, sex and course (p>0/05) and there is a meaningful relation between education and the level of knowledge (p>0/05).
 Conclusions: According to the result of study which shows low fire knowledge level among students, relevant training programs are required to teach how fire exist, how to prevent fire and how to extinguish the fire.
