Fire safety information saves lives. Itís as simple as that. Whether itís in your own home or in your place of employment, education and clear markings of important fire hazards and safety equipment can prevent injuries and save structures as long as people are well aware of everything they need to know. Depending upon the environment where you are living or working will dictate how much communication is needed. Larger buildings, including tall apartment buildings, require more complexity and greater clarity, in order to keep everyone safe in the event of an emergency.
What types of information should people be aware of? Firstly, the most important thing to do in the event of a fire is to exit the building in a safe and orderly manner. In order to accomplish this, everyone should be aware of all the fire exits. This should include advising people to not take elevators when leaving a building. People should also be aware of what a fire alarm sounds like in order to make sure everyone is clear what the appropriate response is in the event that is activated. This includes advising everyone on whether sprinklers and other devices will activate as this can often be surprise to many.
People should also be aware of any fire hazards. This includes basic electrical equipment that many homes and offices have such as a coffeemaker. These devices can generate a large amount of heat and cause fires if left on. Devices like these should be indicated as hazards and switched off when not in use. Certain work environments and homes also include possible fire hazards in the form of open flames and large electrical equipment that can catch fire. Identify these to everyone who lives and works around them.
All fire safety equipment should be clearly labeled and easily accessible. Whether at home or at work, everyone who is inside a building, even visitors, should be immediately able to tell where fire extinguishers and other fire safety products are as well as instructions on how to use them. These can prevent major structures fires.
Finally, proper safety protocol such as stop-drop-and-roll maneuvers should be taught to everyone. These too can save lives and posters explaining the proper response to such emergencies should be clear and available for everyone to see.
Regular training of family or personal should occur often to keep everything fresh in their minds and prepare them for a dangerous emergency.
