Abstract: How fire safety management schemes (FSMS) can be worked out to ensure safety in existing karaoke establishments is demonstrated in this paper. A FSMS should include the normal maintenance schedule for all passive building construction and fire services installation; staff training; and the action to be taken in case of a fire accident. The importance of carrying out fire safety management is emphasised with the details of implementing the scheme listed out. Proactive planning to fire prevention and active response to all potential fires in a karaoke establishment are pointed out for drafting actual operation procedures. Different management schemes with three action levels are recommended for different karaokes ranked by a fire safety ranking system proposed earlier. A normal operation mode and an emergency mode should be worked out with actions to be taken listed. For personnel management, a fire safety manager should be appointed. The duties to be carried out have to be designated carefully as staff without appropriate training and knowledge would not improve the situation.
