Putting Up With Fire
Fire can have a devastating impact on anybody who is unfortunate enough to be near it. We all know that the flames and heat from a fire can cause a great deal of harm – from breathing the hot air killing a person instantly to life-threatening or life-changing burns on the body. There are many other aspects of fires that can cause a great deal of harm and why its prevention through reliable fire protection measures must not be undermined.
The first step in fire prevention is to undertake a risk assessment to identify potential hazards and triggers that could result in an emergency.
- Faulty electronic devices, wiring, and cables
- Overloaded or defective plug sockets
- Cooking appliances
- Heating appliances
- Combustible materials and flammable liquids placed near heat sources
- Cigarettes, lighters, and open flames
A fire prevention plan documents all of the potential hazards that you have found in your risk assessment and details the appropriate safety protocols to follow during a fire. Putting a fire prevention plan in place can significantly reduce the extent of damage that a fire can cause and help to avert one from breaking out in the first place. This will greatly be advantageous when incorporated into the design of the property and thoroughly advised to the residents or workers, in case of a business.
Fire Alarm and Extinguishers
Fire alarm systems go hand in hand with exiting the building during a fire or other emergencies. These fire prevention systems in buildings include the fire alarms themselves, all components that make them work, those that feed into the alarms, and those that are connected to them, like sprinklers. Additionally, the placement of enough fire extinguishers is also a must.
