Fire Safety Tips by Titan Restoration of AZ

Knowing about fire safety, whether at home or at work, is important and should consist of information that includes prevention, what to do when a fire occurs, and what equipment should be on hand for when this happens. Other things you need to know in order to safely escape, prevent, and stop a fire, include what kinds of fire alarms should be installed in your home, or office, how to use fire extinguishers properly, and what to do after a fire happens.

Fire Safety Tips

The most common advice you will get when it comes to fire safety is, if and when a fire does happen in your home or office, the best thing to do is to get out and to call for help. Here are a few more tips that will come in handy, should a fire happen:

  • For you to find out when a fire does occur, even when you are away from the area where it started, you should always make sure that all the rooms in your home or your office have smoke alarms.
  • Installing these alarms is only the beginning. For you to ensure that these are working fine, testing these regularly is necessary.
  • You will also need to create a fire escape plan that your family, or the people in your office, can use when this disaster does strike.
  • Prevention is always a better alternative to trying to put out a fire. To do this, you need to remember to keep anything flammable away from things that can easily catch fire. Rags should be kept away from stoves or ovens, volatile materials should be distanced from heat sources, and matches should always be kept out of reach of children.
  • Do not leave anything cooking on the stove alone and without anyone watching. Should you find the need to leave what you are cooking, you should turn the burner on the stove off before leaving.
  • Make sure everyone in your home knows your fire escape plan by heart, and what roles they have to play when there is a fire emergency.
  • If you suspect that a fire is raging in another room, do not open the door. Instead, try to test the doorknob or the door itself to see if it is warm to the touch. If it is, find another way out of the house or building.
  • If you encounter thick smoke on your way out, crawl on the way out. The air near the floor is often clear of smoke since heat rises. This way, you stand a better chance of getting outside safely as opposed to staying upright and inhaling the smoke that the fire is producing.
  • If all your exits are blocked, stay in a room that you can close, and then place a soaking wet towel under the gap of the door to keep smoke out. Immediately call 911 for help, try to open a window and wave a brightly colored piece of cloth to signal people that you are still inside.
