The Faculty of Engineering, one of the faculties at Mulawarman University, has the potential for fire to occur.

The results obtained from the 20 elements of the assessment carried out on 69 fire extinguishers at the Faculty of Engineering obtained an average of 59.47% according to the standard. From the calculation, it was found that the need for all fire extinguishers in the Faculty of Engineering building is 41 fire extinguishers which previously had 69 fire extinguishers. This amount also reduces maintenance costs from Rp8.775,000, - to Rp5.625.00, -. Suggestions for improvement are given to the extinguishers that aren’t accordance with ther application refers to the standards used, reducing the number of extingushers, allocationg 3 fire extinguishers to other building and storing 28 unused fire extinguishers in the warehouse.
