Fire Prevention Tips to Learn During Fire Safety Training

Fire safety is the set of practices intended to reduce the damage caused by fire. Fire safety measures include those that propose to prevent ignition of an uncontrolled fire and those that are used to limit the development and effects of a fire after it starts.

While death and injury are the greatest risks and the ones with which most people are familiar. Preventing fires is everyone’s job. We all need to be alert to anything and anyplace where it is workplace or home or visitor place that could cause a fire.

Here are some general fire safety plan and fire prevention tips which you learn during Fire Safe Training or sharing with your employees or with family members.

Make A Fire Safety Plan

  1. Key contact information
  2. Utility services (Including shut-off lids for water, gas and electric)
  3. Access issues
  4. Dangerous stored materials
  5. Location of people with special needs
  6. Connections to sprinkler system
  7. Layout, drawing, and site plan of building
  8. Maintenance schedules for life safety systems
  9. Personnel training and fire drill procedure
  10. Create safe haven
Use of fire safety plans
  1. Fire safety planning is a useful tool for firefighters to have because they allow them to know critical knowledge about a building that they may have to go into.
  2. Firefighters can locate and avoid potential dangers such as hazardous material storage areas and flammable chemicals.
  3. Fire safety plans can also provide specialised information that, in the case of a hospital fire, can provide information about the position of things.
  4. Fire safety also plans greatly improve the safety of firefighters.
  5. Fire safety plans can describe any possible structural hazards, as well as give the fire fighter information of where he is in the building.
Tips for Fire Safety Prevention
  1. Install smoke detectors at your workplace and home and in the sleeping areas of your home. Smoke detectors can save lives.
  2. Regular check the smoke detectors every month. Make sure everyone in your family and workplace is familiar with its sonar sound. Teach them that sound means danger, and they need to escape quickly.
  3. In the case of fire don't hide instead go outside. Fires are scary, but you should never hide in closets or under beds when there is a fire.
  4. It is easier to breathe in a fire if you stay low and keep patience while getting out. Check the door before opening it with the back of your hand. If it is hot, try to use another way to get out.
  5.  If your clothes are on fire, then Stop, Drop, and Roll until the fire is out. Shout for help, but don't run. Running makes the fire burn faster.
  6. Choose a gathering place outside, such as a big tree or the end of the driveway, so you will know that everyone has taken out safely. If someone is missing, tell the firefighters about the missing person. They have the equipment to rescue people safely.
The Fire Safety Plan requires that fire safety training is provided to staff when they begin employment and that refresher training is provided on the regular basis.
Fire is the biggest safety risk any businesses ever has. Without fire safety training your protection may not be valid and your staff are left helpless.

In Fire Safety training courses you will learn the common causes of fire, behaviour of fire, Fire Prevention, What to do if a fire breaks out How to use fire extinguishers and Emergency evacuation procedures.
