RS Components have provided a link to a practical guide to preventing fires at home.
The guide offers lots of helpful information such as:
- Basic safety rules when a fire occurs at home such as GET OUT, STAY OUT and CALL FOR HELP. Life-saving tips such as recognising smoke alarms, symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, and having a good assessment of fire hazards in your home.
- Educational tips and advice that can help keep children and the family safe during a house fire such as teaching kids the importance of not playing with matches and lighters, having a fire evacuation plan at home and practicing household fire drills at least twice a year.
- Helpful and practical information on fire preparedness – what to do in the event of a house fire, knowing the STOP, DROP, and ROLL method if your clothes catch on fire, and knowing how to use fire extinguishers when needed.
- Other useful resources, tools, and information about fire safety, prevention, and preparation to help educate everyone in your home.
