  • 1. Make sure all family members know what to do in the event of a fire.

  • 3. Install smoke detectors. Check smoke detectors once a month and change the batteries at least once a year.
  • 4. Post emergency numbers near telephones.
  • 5. Be aware that if a fire threatens your home, you should not place the call to emergency services from inside the home. It is better to get out and place the call to fire authorities from a safe location outside the home.
  • 6. A fire burns for longer and spreads faster when there is an uninterrupted supply of oxygen. So, if there is a fire in your house, run outside the house and close all doors and windows. This will cut off the supply of oxygen and the fire will gradually reduce.
  • 7. If you smell leakage of cooking gas, you should do the opposite. Open all the windows and doors for the gas to escape

  • 9. Keep a couple of buckets with sand to put off fire.
  • 10. Train yourself and teach the rest of the members of the family on how to use the fire extinguisher
  • 11. If your clothes catch fire then lie down on the floor and start rolling. This will put the fire out.
