“To keep ourselves and our family safe, we should exercise vigilance and be more knowledgeable about fire prevention”
The BFP recommends these tips to avoid the occurrence of fire:
1.) Unplug all electrical equipment when not in use and regularly check electrical equipment to avoid overloading of electrical circuits.
2.) When using cooking gas, check for gas leaks and always ensure that the LPG tank is stored in a well-ventilated area to avoid the accumulation of gas vapors.
3.) Enforce “No Smoking” policy inside or outside the house and dispose of cigarette butts properly.
4.) Practice proper housekeeping and keep flammable materials out of reach of children. Flammable materials include candles, lighters, and matches, which should be kept properly and securely.
5.) Plan ahead–establish an emergency and evacuation plan at home and familiarize with escape routes. And most importantly, keep flammables away from your children
6.) In case of fire, close the door of the burning area to stop the spread of fire. As smoke rises up, breathe slowly, and get a piece of wet cloth to cover the nose and mouth to avoid suffocation.
7.) When trapped in a fire hit area, it is highly recommended to go to a room with windows leading outdoors.
8.) If clothes catch fire, do not run or panic, do the: “Stop, Drop, and Roll. “In this life-threatening situation, shout for help or wave a cloth outside the window to alert the people around you and keep in mind to remain calm.
9.) The most important thing to do is to call 911, the nationwide emergency hotline number, and tell the emergency operator of your location right away.
