What should we do in the face of fire

Automobile fires generally occur when a car crashes, overturns, maintains or refuels a car. Automobile fires occur when the fuel is ignited by an open fire. At this point the driver should pay attention to the following points:  immediately cut off the fuel source;  shut off the fuel tank switch or take away the fuel on the car;  turn off the ignition switch immediately try to leave the cab, because the cab is combustible. If the cab door cannot be opened, detach from the windshield. When the fire is close to you and you cannot avoid it, use your body to slam the flame out of the way. When rushing out, care should be taken to protect the exposed skin. Do not open your mouth to breathe or shout loudly so that fireworks will not burn the upper respiratory tract. Fabrics of chemical fiber products such as tritium, nylon and vinylon are flammable. Do not wear clothes made of these fabrics close to the source of fire and should be removed as soon as possible to prevent burns. If the vehicle is on fire, do not use water to douse or beat the fire, but use sand to extinguish it or cover it with a quilt or shroud. If a fire occurs during maintenance or refuelling, drive the burning vehicle away from the oil depot quickly. If the high pressure line causes a fire, cut off the power supply promptly. If several vehicles together or on the road cause a fire, other vehicles should be quickly evacuated or driven away from dangerous and densely populated areas before attempting to extinguish the fire.

How to escape from balcony in case of fire

Most residential buildings constructed in China have balconies, some also have front andback balconies. The role of balconies, summer for people to cool off the heat, winter can be bathed in sunlight ; Early in the morning can breathe fresh air, leisure time can also be overlooking the column; the style of novel, chic balcony, but also to embellish and beautify the appearance of buildings. Flower lovers on the balcony plant a few pottedflowers, but also for the building with some "beauty."

In fact, the role of the balcony is more than that, it also has a close relationship with the fire.

As far as fire prevention is concerned, when a fire breaks out in a room located on the ground floor below, and when doors, stairs or aisles are blocked by smoke and fire and people are trapped in their rooms, people are expected to get out of danger by climbing the downspout at the edge of the balcony. If you are close to the neighbor's balcony, you can escape to the neighbor's balcony with the help of planks or bamboo poles. When strong ropes can be found, they can be fastened to the balcony and lowered; even if they are unable to escape, those who escape to the balcony can gain some time to wait for the fire crews to come to their rescue. When a fire broke out at the Joyoma Building in Sao Paulo, Brazil, 41 people were rescued by fire crews using ladder trucks because they were hiding on balconies or canopies.

Viewed from the aspect of fire fighting, balcony is not only a "trench" for fire fighters to attack the burning area of the building, but also an important channel for saving livesand evacuating materials. Fire personnel use the balcony as a cover, both easy to attackand easy to retreat, but also easy to climb the fire engine extended to the balcony for fire fighting and life-saving.

Of course, from the current situation of people using balconies, there are some drawbacks to fire protection, this is mainly, people living in buildings, and some are also affected by the old concept of "broken homes worth a thousand straws," Will have broken things at home, still used to put on the balcony, so that the balcony has become the family's "waste materials warehouse", In this way, in the event of an external flare (such asa lit firecracker, cigarette butts, matchsticks or other radiant heat sources thrown down from the upper floor, etc.), combustibles placed on the balcony may be ignited, which in turn may cause a fire and threaten the safety of the indoor and neighborhood.

Some families in order to prevent theft, but also ingenuity with steel will be all coveredby the sun. This is from the perspective of burglar is advantageous, but from the perspective of fire is disadvantageous. In the event of a fire, people living in houses coveredwith steel bars would not be able to escape; fire crews' life-saving operations would also be affected.

Why primary and secondary school students can not participate in the direct fire

In order to protect the legitimate rights and interests of young people and the safety oftheir lives, the State has expressly prohibited schools, organs and other social organizations from organizing primary and middle school students to take part in fire fighting.

The students are in the period of growth and development. They do not have the thinking and physical strength of adults. They generally lack the ability and experience of self-protection. In case of emergency, they are often mishandled and casualty accidents occur. Therefore, for the vast number of teenage friends, if a fire is found, the most important thing is to get out of danger as soon as possible and evacuate the fire site. This will not only ensure their own safety, but also provide adults with the convenience of putting out the fire so that they can concentrate on putting it out. In this sense, protecting their own safety is also contributing to the fire fighting work.

Signs of fire, can you identify them

Smells burnt and doesn't care what happens

Even small fires can spread smells far away, especially from chemicals such as plastics, foams and sponges that are now common. If you look at a large number of fatal fires, you can smell them burning before they happen, but often no one is aware of them. On February 14, 1993, a huge fire broke out in the Linxi Department Store in Tangshan City. The fire started from a mattress pile on the first floor of the mall, but no one informed the shop assistants and customers on the second and third floors. When people on the second and third floors found the fire downstairs, the escape exits were blocked by thick smoke and 80 people were killed in the fire. 'At first it smelled of burnt plastic, it smelled bad, but I didn't really care, ' said one of the escapees, recalling the scene. ' I didn't know there was a fire until I saw the smoke coming up and ran to see what was going on. ' Therefore, the sudden smell of burning things paste, should be alerted, this paste is often plastic, sponge and other chemical products burning taste, quite pungent unpleasant smell, toxic.

Someone shouted "Fire!" thinking it was a prank, joking

The story of the wolf has been told by many people since childhood, and this sad story is still repeated today. Everyone thinks they will escape if they hear the word "fire", which is often not the case. For example, a group of people together always like to talk and laugh, or colleagues in the unit often play tricks on each other, once someone calls it "fire",It is not uncommon for people not to believe, or even to think, that the "believer" is an idiot. In a stressful job, in a tired sleep, in an exuberant party, when they suddenly hear "Fire!", many enemies do not want to believe. In November 19B, 1993, a fire broke out in Shenzhen Chihli Toy Factory. The fire was not very strong at first. The workers were working nervously in the workshop. There was someone called "Fire!" outside. Most people did not react at first, and some people blamed: " Who is making a fuss again? It was not until an open fire finally appeared that the workshop knew that there was a fire, which eventually claimed the lives of 81 people.

Seeing the smoke: Still confused, "Where did it come from?"

Smoke is the most obvious sign of a fire and the sight of smoke means it can be very dangerous, but not everyone can think of a fire when they see it, but they are puzzled: how come there is so much smoke? August 26, 1998, a huge fire broke out in Changzhou City Hospital. Many people in the hospital at the beginning of the fire were seen smoking, but not evacuated in time. Most of the people did not know what had happened, and the slightly alert men ran to see what had happened. Some nurses simply shut the door, thinking it was all right to keep the smoke out of the door, and continued to administer injections to the patients until it was discovered that a fire had broken out, and 14 people died in the fire.

When afirebreaks out, the smell of something burning is the most common sign. If there is a power outage at the same time, or hear the sound of broken glass, or someone called "fire" two or three signs appear together, then there must have been afirealarm, it should be rushed to escape. If we do not know how to detect danger in time, it may lead to the fate of being consumed by thefiredevil.

What to do if a fire breaks out in a moving vehicle?

The correct and effective method is: first of all to calm down, not panic, as soon as possible to stop the vehicle at the roadside in a more spacious area, and then take out the fire extinguishing equipment to carry out rescue.
