As a start the authorities should check all corridors and fire exits of all buildings to ensure that they are free of any blockages, as too many times i have observed that personal items are being dumped in the fire exit staircase.

People are a big problem when safety is concerned, their ignorance and bad behaviour. We were living in Al Khan area in Sharjah (Bait al Karam building) and one family in the next building was many times making food on their window, they would open the kitchen window and place a small gas burner outside and fry the food. I was afraid if that falls down our building and theirs would be set on fire. Once I even asked them why are they doing that, but no response, they just continued.
