Abstract: This paper describes the results of a survey about community perceptions toward hazard of fire and participation in prevention of fire disaster. The study was conducted among communities of Kampung Kawang, Papar, and Kampung Likas at Kota Kinabalu. The result of the study shows that there was awareness of likely fire hazard which would threaten their personal safety though they believe it was unlikely to occur in one's life among the subject. The likely of hazard of fie was also being underestimated and misunderstood by the subject. The study supports the notion that the public frequently have a low personal interest in risk but a high expectation of government responsibility and others people support in the case of disaster..
