A Fire Safety Guide for 2023December 28th, 2022 | by Vancouver Fire | in Security and Fire Monitoring | 0
In today’s blog article, we would like to offer some general tips for improving your fire safety in the new year. It would be impossible to write one fire safety guide that applies to each individual situation, so instead we will offer a few guidelines.
Get a fire extinguisher, and keep it in or near the kitchen. If your home has a workshop, have another fire extinguisher there. Make sure the adults in the home know how to use it, and make sure the extinguisher is inspected on a regular basis.
Teach children what to do in case of fire, and especially how to get out of an upper floor. Get an emergency drop-down rope ladder so that kids could get out of a window. Have regular fire drills, so your children know what to do in case of emergency.
Businesses need a more comprehensive fire safety plan, and the bigger the business, the bigger the plan is that is needed. The most important part of any fire safety plan in a business setting is to know how to get out in case of fire and who is in charge. This is especially important if you have any handicapped individuals in the workspace, who may require some special attention.
Usually, a big business will get help from professionals to write a fire safety plan. This kind of plan outlines what safety equipment is in place, how often it requires testing and inspection, and who is responsible for these things.
