Avoiding Fire Fatalities
There are ways to avoid fire fatalities. There are four major categories of fire safety equipment that should be used in order to reduce the risk of death due to fires.
The first type of fire safety equipment is called a smoke detector, which detects the presence of smoke by means of a chemical or heat sensor. Smoke detectors help people know when there is a fire so they can have enough time to escape.
The second type of fire safety equipment is called a carbon monoxide alarm, which detects the presence of carbon monoxide with a chemical or electrochemical sensor that alerts people if there is a buildup of dangerous gas in the home.
The third type is an emergency escape-route plan with two ways out from each room and with each route being large enough for two people to pass through.
The last type of equipment is a fire extinguisher, which can be used to fight smaller fires until the local firefighters arrive. Fire safety equipment helps reduce the number of fatalities in house fires but it cannot prevent all deaths because most fatalities occur within three minutes of when the fire is discovered – therefore quick evacuation is necessary to save lives.
Top 10 essential pieces of fire safety equipment
It can be hard to find the best fire safety equipment for your needs. So we’ve compiled a list of the top 10 essential pieces of gear to help you make an informed decision.
The first thing you should consider is what kinds of fires are most common where you live and work, as well as how much money you’re willing to spend on a particular piece of equipment. You might also want to think about whether or not it’s necessary for those who will use the equipment without supervision (for example, children) to know how it works – if that’s important, then choose devices with clear instructions and warning labels. In any case, here are some general recommendations:
1) A smoke alarm that meets current UL standards should be installed in every room of your home, or anywhere you sleep.
2) A fire extinguisher should be kept on all floors. Make sure everyone knows how to use it and make a plan with your family about what you will do if the alarm goes off while one of you is asleep or away from home.
3) Replace disposable batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors once a year.
4) Store fire extinguishers out of reach and between 3 feet (1 m) and 5 feet (1.5 m) off the ground – but not near any appliances or flammable material, which could cause it to discharge accidentally.
5) You can place fire extinguishers at the top of stairs, but make sure potential rescuers know where it is and how to use it.
6) If you choose a powder-type fire extinguisher, store it in an enclosed cabinet (not on the floor).
7) Test all smoke alarms every month.
8) Have a primary and secondary escape route, as well as a meeting place outside each.
9) Don’t overload electrical outlets with appliances or lamps and make sure all cords are in good condition.
10) Have a fire plan for your family – including at least two ways out of every room, plus a back-up in case one of those exits gets blocked.
