Fire is an important part of our daily lives but can be very dangerous when it is not carefully managed. The flames and smoke can spread very quickly and cause a lot of damage to people and property. A raging fire creates so much smoke that it people lose visibility and also inhale it which make it difficult for them to escape. The ideal way to reduce the risk of fire is to install fire prevention measures such as fire and smoke alarms and also having portable fire equipment such as fire extinguishers at hand. Fires can start in a number of ways but things such as faulty wiring and overloaded sockets or improper storage of materials that are combustible can lead to unmanaged fires.

The first step that should be taken in any commercial or residential place is to identify any potential risks and then install the measures to prevent them. Early warning systems such as fire alarm installation alert the people of the building or house that there has been detection of smoke and fire and that they should take action to get out of the place as quickly and safely as possible. These alarms are directly connected to the fire station nearby so that immediate help can arrive. People should also know how to respond to the alert and should know how to exit the building. Fire drills should be regularly conducted so that people know what to do should the situation arise.

Fire extinguishers are a common sight and is a hand-held firefighting tool that is used to contain small fires before they get out of control. They contain water, foam, dry powder, carbon dioxide and wet chemical. They should be used in situations where you know that it is suitable for the size of fire in place. It works by pulling the pin out of the tool and aiming at the base of the fire. You then press the handle to release the contents and spray them from side to side while still aiming at the base.

Fire blankets are used in fires that are created by cooking oils and fats and have a temperature of 480 degrees Celsius. They are mostly used in kitchens and extinguish the fire by smothering it and thereby depriving it of oxygen. They are very useful at home and at offices especially for those people that don’t know how to use a fire extinguisher.

Fire hose are used for fires that are fueled by materials such as paper or wood and allow a strong stream of water to erupt. The hose comes with a long reel that unravels quickly and can go a long distance if need be.
