Safety Tips

FIRE SAFETY TIPS

#1 - Close Bedroom's doors all night to keep smoke and heat out. Heat, smoke and toxic gases are all more threatening than flames. They could lull you into a deep sleep before the flames even reach your door. Fire isn't bright red or orange or noisy it's pitch black from the smoke and deadly quiet. During fires, smoke and poisonous gases rise with the heat, stay low where the air is cooler. Stay calm and roll out of bed, crawl or roll low on the floor, below the smoke, keep your nose on the ground all the way to safety, cover mouth and nose with wet cloth, keep water in plastic bottle under bed or in closet to dampen cloth to protect face during escape, practice escape routes in pitch dark or blindfolded twice a year. Keep one hand on the wall to guide your escape.

#2 - Feel the door before opening it, if it's hot do not open, and get out another way. Stay calm and close all doors behind you as you leave, but do not lock them. Do not stop, time is critical, don't dress, find pets or risk your life grabbing valuables. Do not hide from firefighters, do not hide under bed or in closets. Don't call 911 or fire dept. from inside your home, call them from neighbors or somewhere outside the burning house. Choose two safe pre-arranged meeting places outside the house. Designate one family member to go to a neighbors house to call fire dept.or 911. Don't get off the neighbor's phone from 911 until you get instructions and are directed to hang up.

#3 - Exit Drills In The Home (EDITH), Create fire escape routes, draw floor plan with 2 ways to escape each room, practice them with frequent visitors and babysitters every year. Place bells or other loud practiced family alarms all over the house, otherwise shout fire as you run outside. If possible wake and get everyone together, but you must leave quickly. Once outside the burning home , stay calm and stay outside. Tell firemen if you know of anyone who is trapped inside. Your house number should be 4 inches high and reflective to be seen from the street so emergency vehicles can find you.

#4 - If clothes catch fire, stop, and drop to the ground, cover your face with your hands and keep rolling until the fire is out. Stay Calm! Do not keep running! Friends can use heavy cloth, towels or small rugs to help put out the flames. If burned, place wound under cool water for 15 minutes, never use ice, never put any grease on a burn, blisters or charred skin need medical help quickly. Be very careful when tired, half of domestic fires happen between 10 PM and 8 AM.

#5 - Create and enforce a Kid Free Zone three feet around stove, kitchen accidents cause most house fires. Everyone especially kids should not cook unattended; cook with short sleeves and no loose fitting clothes; use lids to cover pots; turn handles to the side, but not extending over other burners; keep long hair tied back; a window by stove should never have curtains; make knobs on stove hard for kids to turn; keep entire area clear; keep potholders or dishrags away from burners; never use towels as potholders; don't keep candy, cookies or treats in cabinets above stove; don't store spray cans near the stove; smother grease fire with lid, baking soda, salt or smother it with a damp cloth. (never use water or flour); be careful when using hot oil or cooking with fat. Never fill a pan more than one-third full of fat or oil. Never leave the pan unattended when the heat is switched on. Never put the food in the pan if the oil begins to give off smoke. Turn off the heat and leave the oil to cool, otherwise it could catch fire. If pan catches on fire smother it with a damp cloth.

#6 - Keep halogen lights and appliances that have hot surfaces away from kids, low ceilings and drapes. Turn off all lights when you are finished with them. Do not put clothing, towels or sheets on top of a lampshade, put nothing. Don't use too high wattage bulbs, Never smoke in bed, or sitting on a chair if you feel close to dozing. Never leave a lit cigarette or pipe unattended. Before emptying ashtrays make sure nothing is still lit. Only use child resistant lighters. Store lighters all matches in the home in a metal container up high, in a locked cabinet if possible. Use non tip ashtrays, Be careful with candles, don't leave them burning unattended, or around a child or pet, or near anything that can burn. Don't blow candles out in the direction of people or pets, Do not play with fire in your secret places like under beds, in closets, within play tents, or in your bedrooms. Fire is a tool not a toy, it is hot, fast, deadly and dark.

#7 - Keep space heaters on a firm surface 3 feet from anything that can burn, turn them off when asleep or when you leave your home. Un-vented gas-fired space heaters should never be used in small enclosed areas. Make sure it has a thermostat control mechanism, and switches off automatically if it falls. Unplug space heaters when not in use. Don't use them as dryers, tables or steps. Replace any wires that are cracked or frayed. Space heaters should never be connected to outlets with extension cords. Keep window slightly open or door ajar when using a unvented heater.

#8 - Don't overload extension cords, no cords under rugs or furniture or inside walls (they need to dissipate heat), unplug unusual smelling or smoking appliances. Use correct sized fuses, No loose connections. If lights dim when you put on an appliance that circuit is overloaded. If sparks appear when you insert or remove a plug, they could be a sign of loose connections. Electricity is very dangerous never play with electrical cords, outlets or wall sockets. Allow air space around the TV to prevent overheating. Don't have liquid near the computer or near other electric objects or machines.

#9 - All fire exit security bars on windows and locked doors need release devices that operate quickly and easily by every member of the family. Do not use a padlock. Use a collapsible ladder or rope for escape from upper story windows. Break windows safely, and cover jagged edges with bedding or towels before going through. Throw cushions or bedding out window to break your fall. Don't jump through window, lower yourself feet first down and then drop.

#10 - In every room install smoke detectors with both ionization and photoelectric sensors, especially in bedrooms and on every level (but not by kitchen). Test all alarms monthly and familiarize kids to the sound, change batteries in Fall. Keep dust off devices, and replace whole units every 10 years. If you own gas or oil-fired appliances or vehicles (cars), wood-burning furnaces or stoves, or you live in kerosene heated or homes with fireplaces you should also use battery-powered carbon monoxide (co) alarms. Replace sensor element regularly in most carbon monoxide alarms.

#11 - Never use your range or oven to help heat your home and never use a charcoal grill or hibachi in your home or garage. Never keep a car running in a garage. Even if the garage doors are open. Put fire extinguishers on every floor in your home and in the kitchen, garage, & car. Install sprinklers in kids and elderly rooms for valuable extra time. Test water before the kids get in, or buy faucet locks for the bathtub and accessible sinks. Set your hot water heater to 120 degrees F (49 C) or below. Don't touch radiators, heaters, ovens, pots on the stove, electrical cords, sparklers, incense, unattended cigarettes, irons, light sockets, chili peppers, Keep back from fireplaces and all open fires. Don't play with fireworks and firecrackers, don't replace light bulbs on your own. Keep medications, paints, thinners, dangerous chemicals and cleaning liquids/powders out of kids reach in cabinets with child proof locks. Never store gas, paint or flammable substances near dryers, water heaters or any heat generating or gas powered utility. Create a safety zone around your house, clear flammable vegetation, plant fire resistive plants like annuals and plants that are moist and supple, with little dead wood and with water like sap without a strong odor. Lightening will strike the tallest things around, don't get caught in a field, don't hide under a tree, get inside quickly. Always stay indoors and away from glass windows during bad weather. Never take apart or fix electrical objects, don't climb power poles or fly kites near power lines; never put anything with a power cord near sinks, bath tubs or puddles of water. Have a garden hose with a nozzle and shovel outside home. Stack firewood away from house. Keep roof clear and washed on a regular basis. Check on children often, don't leave them unsupervised too long. Use non-flammable or fire resistant materials for curtains and upholstery. Cover all unused electric outlets. Teach kids name/address

#12 - In high-rises Feel the door with the back of your hand, if not warm brace body against door while staying low and open door a crack. Check for smoke or fire, if safe exit quickly and proceed to stairway but check it's door the same way. If you encounter fire or smoke return to safe apartment. Do not use elevators! If door was warm don't open it, but unlock it. turn on bathtub and wet down the hot doors, stuff the door cracks with wet towels, wet bedding or heavy tape and cover vents to keep deadly smoke out, turn off all air conditioners. Call the fire dept or the emergency number posted by the telephone, or 911 with you exact location. If no smoke is outside, go onto balcony or open window at top & bottom and hang or wave a bright-colored cloth, hang a sheet or shine flashlight. Don't break windows they might have to be closed later, Close windows when smoke is outside, but stay by window (if no other way out) to be rescued, be patient and stay calm. Learn the sound of your building's fire alarm, l earn your buildings evacuation plans, never prop stairway or other fire doors open, once outside don't assume someone else has called the fire department.
