Fire Safety Measures

Fire safety concerns safety measures to prevent the effects of fires and is the result of proper use of fire protection measures. Essential fire safety measures are any installations or type of construction that have been incorporated into the building to ensure the safety of the occupants within the building in the event of fire or other emergency.

There are many fire safety equipments like fire extinguishers, fire blankets, fire blankets, fire alarm bells etc.

Fire Extinguishers

A fire extinguisher is an active fire protection device used to extinguish or control small fires, often in emergency situations. There are basically four different types or classes of fire extinguishers, each of which extinguishes specific types of fire.

Dry Chemical extinguishers are usually rated for multiple purpose use. They contain an extinguishing agent and use a compressed, non-flammable gas as a propellant.

Water extinguishers contain water and compressed gas and should only be used on Class A (ordinary combustibles) fires.

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) extinguishers are most effective. Since the gas disperses quickly, these extinguishers are only effective from 3 to 8 feet.

Fire extinguishers should be mounted in the kitchen, garage, and workshop. You need to learn how to use your fire extinguisher before there is an emergency. Fire extinguishers should be used on small fires only. If there is a large fire, get out immediately.

Fire blankets

A fire blanket is a safety device designed to extinguish small incipient (starting) fires. A fire blanket either completely surrounds a burning object or is placed over a burning object and sealed closely to a solid surface around the fire.

Fire safety alarms

A fire alarm system is an active fire protection system that detects fire or the effects of fire, and as a result provides one or more of the following: notifies the occupants, notifies persons in the surrounding area, summons the fire service, and controls all the fire alarm components in a building. Fire alarm systems can include alarm initiating devices, alarm notification appliances, control units, fire safety control devices, annunciators, power supplies, and wiring.

Proper fire safety training is necessary for implementing the fire safety measures or equipments.
