Prevention First’s educational campaign goes like: “Change Your Clock; Test Your Alarms; practice Your Home Fire Drill; Alarm Goes Off - You Get Out !” twice every year. Government and Non-Government Organisations keep broadcasting such warning under public interest because even the slightest ignorance can prove deadly. Fire accidents at home and work places are the most common hazards occurring which can be fatal and destructive beyond our imagination. The only good thing about hazards is that they are preventable up to an extent. If you are an employer, owner, landlord, occupier, or anyone else with control of the work or home premises then you are definitely entitled as the ‘responsible person’. You are responsible for fire safety in the home or work premises. As the saying goes ‘Accidents foreseen are half avoided’ so does your responsibility of being alert, active, spontaneous and adopting the right behaviour and procedure at the time of any fire accidents.
Many substances that are found in the work place can be held responsible or act as a catalyst in causing fires and explosions. From flammable chemicals, petrol, cellulose paint thinners and welding gases to engine oil, grease, packaging materials, dusts from wood, flour and sugar can be readily burn or explode if treated incautiously. It is important to be aware of the various fire control equipment available in the market and also to use it at the time of fire emergency.
Fire Protection and Safety Equipments
Fire can be prevented. Many such equipments and safety devices are available to prevent, control or put out fire.
Fire extinguishers are used as a ‘first attack’ fire fighting measure generally undertaken by the residents or the workers of the area affected before the fire brigade arrives. Fire starts from the sparks and are controllable if proper type and amount of extinguishing agents is applied. Various extinguishing agents are used depending on the extremism of the hazard. Installing Fire extinguishers is now made compulsory in public and private residential buildings, public areas and every place where there is a gathering of people.
Fire Hose Reels
Like Fire extinguishers , fire hose reels are also used as a ‘first aid’ for fighting n put out fire when it is still controllable. A pressurised water supply from the hose reels can be effective in putting out fire. Fire hose reels are also used by fire fighters.
Automatic Sprinkler System
Automatic sprinkler system is the most reliable one amongst all the fire controlling measures. Sprinkler systems are usually installed in higher buildings and highly hazardous occupancies. A sprinkler head is an automatic tap which is connected to a pressurised water system. When the sprinkler head is heated by the fire, it opens at a pre-set temperature and the water is sprayed onto the fire and also on the hot and smoky layer of the building surface.
Small devices that can sense smoke, typically as an indicator of fire, are installed in home or workplaces to take adequate preventive steps to cease the fire immediately. These alarms alert the administration and fire control system as soon as they sense the smoke. Smoke detectors are a great help in preventing spreading of fire.
