emergency exit usually mounted to the outside of a building
A fire escape, outside a building (the iron stairs)
Fire exits are signalled with signs similar to the one shown

When a person needs to get away from a fire, inside a building or a tunnel, they need to do this quickly. For this reasons, fire escapes are installed, and signaled. Very often fire escapes are separate stairways, often outside the building.
