Here’s How To Avoid Fire Accidents

Many people have been killed, or injured by fire due to their own ignorance, or the ignorance of other people. Many properties have been destroyed as well. In order to avoid fire accidents, just follow the tips below:
• Keep fire away from children: kids are ignorant of many of their actions, hence, you need to keep them away from fire. If you have a lighted candle in your apartment for instance, ensure that it’s kept in a safe place that can’t be easily reached by children. Also, you need to realize that kids are good at observing what the grown ups do, and they also want to do the same thing. If you have a match box, or lighter, keep it away from their reach, otherwise, they might just want to try what they see you doing with it, and might end up setting the whole building on fire.

• Call firefighters immediately: if there’s a fire breakout, while you try your best to put it off, you should equally call the firefighters or fire guards. This will serve as a backup incase you aren’t able to put off the fire yourself.
• Avoid Bush burning during harmattan: this time of the year is often characterized with dry, high speed wind. It is therefore easier for fire to spread beyond limit. If there’s a need for you to burn a bush, you should do it in other time of the year and not during harmattan season. This is also because things are always dry during this season, hence, easier to be burnt by fire. If at all you wish to burn your bush during this season, ensure to stay close to it with enough water in your reach, such that immediately you notice its getting out of boundary, you can do well by putting it off. You can as well seek the service of fire watch guards.
