Basic Fire Safety Principles

  1. Do not attempt to fight a fire without sufficient facilities to combat it effectively
  2. Remember every fire gives off toxic gases
  3. Use extreme caution when an electrical appliance or wiring is involved in the fire (Don’t use water extinguishers for these types of fires)
  4. Never allow the fire to get between you and your means of escape
  5. If outdoors, always attack the fire with the wind to your back
  6. Never turn away from the fire; back out, keeping a watchful eye for reignition
  7. Fire extinguishers are under pressure and need to be treated with respect
  8. Fire extinguishers post operation require maintenance by a qualified provider
  9. Approach A Fire Only IF Safe To Do So
