What To Know About Home Fires
What To Know About Home Fires?
It’s easy to take fire safety for granted and think that it won’t happen to you. But the truth is, a fire can occur anytime and can happen to anyone. Here are a few things you need to know about home fires according to Ready.gov.
Fire is FAST – It only takes seconds for a small flame to turn into a major fire. It only takes minutes for your home to be engulfed in flames.
Fire is HOT – It’s important to remember that heat is more life threatening than flames. During a fire, room temperatures can reach 100 degrees at floor level and rise to 600 degrees at eye level. Inhaling this super-hot air will cause damage to your lungs and melt clothes to your skin.
Fire is DARK - Fire can quickly spread and produces black smoke and engulf your home into total darkness, making it more challenging to escape.
Fire is DEADLY - Fire produces poisonous gases that can disorient you and make you drowsy. Asphyxiation is the leading cause of fire deaths, exceeding burns by a 3-to-1 ratio.
To prepare your family for a fire, make sure you create a fire escape plan and practice this at least twice a year. Make sure this plan gets you out of your home in less than two minutes. If a fire does occur in your home, remind everyone to get out, stay out and call for help and never go back inside to try and get anything (or anyone) out.
