What steps should be taken in case of fire in the building?


Every day there are incidents of fire in various buildings in Pakistan due to which many people lose their precious lives.

In most developed countries, the system is so good that when there is a fire, a high alert signal is sounded, due to which the people in the building are able to leave the building immediately.

The staff is also diligent and reaches immediately to put out the fire, but in a country like Pakistan, these facilities are very lacking and the fire brigade staff also reaches the scene after a long time after the fire, due to which much damage has been done.

Today we will tell you some precautions that you can take to protect yourself from fire:

Control your senses

In any situation where you are trapped on the upper floors of a building in the event of a fire, the first thing to do is keep your senses under control because often when there is a fire, people lose their senses and jump down unconscious.

Experts suggest that if the way down is blocked, try to go to the roof of the building.

Open the windows

When a fire breaks out in any place, the majority of those present die due to a lack of oxygen. According to experts, if you open the window of the room and stay close to it, it will make your breathing easier.

Disconnect the power supply

As soon as there is a fire in any place, most of the people present there to run away, while in such situations, if some small things are done, the damage can be reduced.

Experts say that in such situations, first of all, the people present there should suspend the power supply because the electric wires will burn and cause more short circuit and electrocution incidents. Often rescue personnel also fall victim to it. Since emergency exit signboards are made of glow-in-the-dark material, they should be disconnected regardless of the darkness.

Keep getting yourself wet

According to experts, if you are in a place where there is a fire, then not only keep yourself wet with water but also keep drinking it, because in such a case, the process of dehydration in the body will slow down. 

Stay close to the ground

Experts say that since the smoke and hot gases remain high in the air, one should try to stay on the ground. And if you have to go from one place to another, either sit or crawl. Thus it may be possible to live in relatively clean air near the ground.
