In Case of Fire: Don’t Panic!

In Case of Fire: Don’t Panic!

Few things instil fear in people like an out-of-control fire. While being a wholly beneficial element, they have the potential to ruin rooms, buildings, even cities (the great fire of London in 1666 proves it). Still, if you act quick enough, everybody can get to safety, and damage can be kept to a minimum. So if you are ever in the unfortunate situation where one rages out of control in your office, here are a few important things to remember.
Inform the Right People of the Fire
When a fire is discovered, the appropriate people need to be informed immediately. Start by informing the local fire department, there is no time to waste on this matter, the sooner they get there, the more lives will be saved. It is also important to inform the appropriate security personnel.
Evacuate Orderly and Carefully
Evacuation should be done orderly to avoid confusion, hysteria and the possibility of causing harm to others as they make their way to the appropriate exit. If you need to move through a closed door, be sure to test it by resting the back of your hand on the door to see if there is any heat behind it. If there is, do not open the door, as the change in air pressure will further fuel the fire behind it.
Stay Below the Smoke
If you find yourself still in the building as smoke begins to rise from the fire, be sure to stay low and breathe slowly. Asphyxiation is one of the biggest killers in building fires.
Invest in a Quality fire Suppression System
Being prepared in the event of a fire with quality sprinklers and control systems is essential. By the time a fire breaks out it is too late to start thinking about suppressive measures.
