A home is a beautiful place where you live with your family. You do everything possible to protect it, right? In fire accidents, our family members are in great danger, and so are our belongings. Thus, make sure you take all the precautions to protect it.
Fire-related accidents have, on average, have taken the lives of 35 people every day in the five years between 2016 and 2020, according to a report by Accidental Deaths and Suicides in India (ADSI), maintained by the National Crime Records Bureau. (1) Surprisingly Maharashtra sees the maximum number of such accidental fires even after being one of the most developed states in the country. Almost every month we get to hear news of some high-rise residential buildings catching fire in Mumbai, causing huge damage and loss of lives in the process. Very recently, as many as fourteen people had to be rescued after a fire broke out on the fourteenth floor of a high-rise residential building in Borivali. (2)
During such accidents what seems to cause the most casualties is the smoke emitted as the fire engulfs furniture and other materials and the speed with which the fire spreads indoors also due to the presence of wooden interiors and other inflammable materials. Inhalation of these toxic fumes causes people to lose their senses thus not letting them run for cover. The fast-spreading of fire also stops people from getting rescued at the right time, thus losing precious hours and eventually lives.
Therefore, it is of utmost importance that we take certain steps to ensure our homes are equipped enough to face such fire hazards as accidents wait for none and it doesn’t hurt to be prepared in advance.
Here are some precautionary measures you can take to avoid fire hazards :
- Fire extinguishers are always recommended for your safety and security to control small fires.
