Fire Safety

Off late there were many fire accidents. One of them being fire on 1st August 2008 Secunderabad-Goutami express.
One should really know how to handle fire accidents.
Should know what are the precautions that need to be taken.
People....please make an effort to learn some precautionary measures.
Its very important... you can save not only your life... but of people who are struck in fire.
Well... I thought its my duty to educate with some basic measures which I have learnt through a fire drill at my office.

Preferences to victims are to be given in this order:
1. Pregnant ladies and children
2. Physically handicapped people
3. Old people and ladies
4. Men

1. Whenever you are caught in fire with smoke around... plz cover your mouth,nose and run downstairs or run outside away from the smoke direction. Smoke always goes up and we better walk by kneeling on the ground. This act would save us from suffocation. Many people in Goutami express died of suffocation. Thats the first safety we can take.

2. If you see any person caught in fire, go to that person from behind and cover them with blanket or thick bedsheet and roll them on the plane ground. Pour cold water if its available. Please dont approach the person from front... the person would be in shock and can catch hold of you out of fear.

There is no guarantee for life these days. With bombs, fire accidents, road accidents, flyovers collapsing etc... with these kind of incidents LIFE has lost its guarantee. And better be insured :). You never know if you would return home safely or not. But we can always take precautions and learn to help others whenever needed.

Its even worst that we cant say goodbye to our dear ones in adverse conditions. So lets live happily in the present moment. Make family, friends happy and live in their hearts forever and ever.......
I would just like to say "LIVE IN THE PRESENT!!!!!!!" You never know what happens in the next moment.
