Last week, we invited a representative from United Asia fire prevention service sdn. bhd. to give a talk in our office on how to prevent fire when you're at home or at the office. This is crucial especially when you're staying in a high rise building.
During the 1 hour seminar, we were thought on the do's and don't during the fire break. There are stuff we actually thought it was ok to do, like what we have seen on TV but they were wrong!
For example, if a person caught in fire, don't try to put the fire off by using blanket because this will cause more damage to the victim's skin. The best way is use the fire extinguisher. (seriously, I thought that was the best way too until this trainer show us photos of fire victims. I must admit that the photos were quite disturbing at pretty graphic. With the video and all where people sanggup jump off 20 storey building that was on fire!) on let's not go there shall we?
Anyways, at the end of the seminar, I bought these 3 item to put at our home.
(L-R) : smoke detector, fire extinguisher ABC and pocket smoke mask
This is a small size fire extinguisher where I can put it at home or in the car.It is lighter and easy to operate. Just pull the pin and spray.
The battery operated smoke detector is as important as the fire extinguisher because smoke travels faster than fire.Whenever a case of fire, we are able to detect the smoke 1st and get ourselves to safety.
Well this is something that I have never seen before. It's a smoke mask where you put it on and you could make yourself to safety in the thick smoke without suffocating.
Now I've done my part for my family by providing safety measure in case whenever there is fire (touch wood). :)
Thanks for looking!
