A fire risk assessment of High School “Sami Frasheri” was conducted, and the results are presented in this paper. The level of fire risk was defined by using qualitative and quantitative methods and depending on the defined level of risk, adequate measures for risk reduction are proposed. The elementary approach of Five Steps and the Matrix method were applied as qualitative methods for fire risk analysis and the Euroalarm method was used as a quantitative method for fire risk analysis. The analysis showed that the school does not meet the fire safety measures and this is due to several factors: lack of appropriate fire protection measures, lack of an adequate number of fire extinguishers and hydrants, lack of alarm for fire detection, lack of trained staff, lack of fire department, lack of fire stairs, doors, and lack of adequate signaling. Based on the results of the performed analysis, qualitative risk assessment method can be applied for rapid and initial fire risk assessment, but for a more detailed analysis, the use of quantitative methods is more effective and provides more specific results.
