The Canadian family members staying with me over Christmas asked a question I'd never really thought about...... How do we get out in a fire [shrug65465.gif]

Hmmm :think:

So I looked on the internet :winedrinker:



Yea... like I'm going to use one of those [adrian.gif]




I have more faith in that one :shifty:



I like that design better :winedrinker:



They look easy to install and a fixed to the wall :whee:

Over all I'm going to ask at the local fire station for advice before doing anything else. :think:

The flames come last...it's the toxic smoke that gets you.

I have to do emergency drills every month where I work due to the population we work with..

First.. all in home should know how to exit in case of smoke or fire. Exit critical. If door closed. Feel door first..if hot to touch never open it..as the fire within can create more of an issue. If some one inside tell them to lay on floor. Of course call for help first... smoke alarms and carbon monoxide devices u hang in ceilings critical. Just make sure when beep you place battery in them so work efficiently. They are sensitive and do detect gas so forth you be ssurprised

Oh God :rolleyes:

Dong with your health issues watching magic mike will finish you off [rofl02.gif]
Linda's been on the cheap fire marshal course again [9n5.gif]

Lets try and apply some common sense to this :pray:

Few house fires happen at night.
Most house fires are caused by electrical faults.

Cheap. You really are very stupid . My training comes from high personnel in fields who train us properly to perform mandated duties. When you held responsible for other people..then make your cheap comments.. AND why you think you know it all....buzz..smoking number 1 fire issue. Second then electrical...good night....

And to think my NEBOSH national fire certificate is nothing compared to Linda's 1/2 day fire marshal training :rolleyes:

My C03 hot work certificate that needs renewing every 5 year is a total waste of time too [9n5.gif]

Linda works with the disabled......and the rules and regulations are far tougher than on a construction site [rofl02.gif]

I work with all walks of life. Not just disabled or abused. So forth. I made a suggestion from what I learned..shared..so be it..if a thought or what learned can not be shared.. you feel good being nasty and critical? You really a piece of work..so nasty. Piss off.

Well Linda's smarter than me........... but she's missed something really basic [9n5.gif]

Thats wrong and out of date [9n5.gif]

Anything that's got a battery in and left on a charger may cause a fire :shock:

Now Linda love..... the lappy your using is a fire risk. Just look at where your using it too :peekaboo:

Charging your phone is a fire risk too :blink:

But its not worth worrying about?

More house fires are caused by fridge freezers and in the UK we have 6 of those per week.

I can think of one gym that was burned to the ground by a faulty water dispenser.

This is out of date too [9n5.gif]

Due to the disability act and right to work, evacuation plan have been updated and changed due to this. In the UK they found people with disabilities slow down evacuation of buildings :shock:

So all work places and building are required to have a "rescue zone". Instead of trying to move people with disabilities putting lives at risk, they move them to the "rescue zone" and leave it to the fire service to get them out. :whistle:

The whole touching door handle things a joke too [rofl02.gif]
All fire doors are required to have a "fire strip". This "fire strip" expands due to the heat of a fire and you will never get it open [spank.gif]

But this threads not about workplace fire safety [eusa_naughty.gif]

It's about what you will do at home if you have a fire [shrug65465.gif]

At 3am when your 1/2 wake and dressed in your baby doll......how the hell are you going to get out :think:

You will be on the first floor, maybe the second, the fire is below you. The escape route is blocked by the fire, the stairwell is acting like a chimney and like Dong said: it's the smoke that kills you [sad.gif]

The fire service will take 5-10 mins to arrive, another 2 mins to set up and carry out an assessment.

In those 7 mins the smoke will killed you.

Like we have all seen on the news so many times, people have a choice, jump or die. Well if you have a escape ladder you can climb out of a window and survive [adrian.gif]
