Abstract: Still we had seen a lot of fire accidents and gas leakages are present in trains. So in this paper reduce the death loss occurring due to fire Fire on a running train is more catastrophic than on a stationary one, since fanning by winds helps spread the fire to other coaches. The damage is heavier due to improper reach of service at right time due to improper communication. T causing heavier damage. Thus, eliminating the time between when an accident occurs and when first responders are dispatched to the scene decreases the damage. This projects help in notifying the passengers and emergency services. The project consists of a microcontroller which is interfaced with the thermistor, gas sensors, water sprinkler and GSM modem, Once the sensors attached in the compartments of train sense the gas detection and fire detection, it assumes a fire accident. The controller assumes it as an emergency and power supply will be automatically off, starts the buzzer, doors are opened, Sprinkler on and GSM modem present in the train sending the message alert to loco pilot and near the railway stations.
Keywords: Sprinkler, D.C. Motor, Thermistor (NTC) & Smoke sensors, GSM, Buzzer, Submergible pump or centrifugal pump.
