Working in the field of Coal Mining (CM) is well known and considered among the most dangerous occupations when matched to many other industrial sectors[1], the safety issues associated with the CM workings gets worse when mining is carried out in the underground environment. In addition to the dangers coupled with the fall of roof, side walls and other harsh conditions in the Underground Coal Mine (UCM), the UCM suffers with additional threats such as the gas leakages, heating of coal and the other causes of fire accidents. All these factors raise concerns on improving the safety in the UCMs. The paper presented here focuses and recommends a safety system to tackle the accidents due to fire and to form a rescue assisting system.
