  • Points of escaping with life in the scene of a fire

    1. When the fire disaster is coming, one should never cling to any property. 2. When a fire occurs in a building, the people should be evacuated downstairs under the floor that is on fire. When fleeing, one should never ride in a common elevator. 3. When one has to flee through the thick smoke, he should try his best to wrap around his body and cover his nose with the damp clothes. After that, he should press his body close to the ground so as to flee away for an exit. 4. If there is a respirator in the house, one must put it on the head when he is just fleeing. 5. If the body catches fire, one can roll over and over on the ground, or cover the fire with the heavy clothes so as to put it out. 6. When the stairway is blocked by the fierce fire and the thick smoke, one can escape towards the neighboring building through a window and a balcony or search for a room without catching a fire or block the window and the door so as to prevent the fire and the smoke from entering into. If the smoke is very thick and the door is burning the hand, it means that the fire has blocked the door, and can’t open the door to survive. At this time, one should fill something in the cracks, splash the water to the door to lower the temperature, and call for help. 7. When a fire occurs, one should use all facilities that can be used to survive, such as the life alleviator, life slide and lifeline. These facilities should be fully used to flee from the fire scene.

  • Emergency 10 points against a fire of house

    1. The early fire is most easily put out. Before the coming of fire trucks, if the people can try their best to rescue, it can always turn peril into safety and pull through danger. 2. Inform the police early. The earlier the police is informed, the less the losses will be. Do remember the fire alarm telephone number of “119” firmly. 3. Put out the fire at first, and then convey the properties. It will create a heavy disaster to delay a moment. When encountering a fire, one should not rescue the properties at first so as to avoid being almost suffocated by smoke or losing the opportunity to survive. 4. Only if the people keep calm and imperturbable, and observe the order strictly, can they withdraw safely from a fire. If the people strive to be the first and fear to be lag behind, crowd with each other, and block the traffic, it will lead to trample on with each other and create the tragedies that shouldn’t occur. 5. If the alleyway of going downstairs is blocked by fire, and no way to survive, one should tear the sheets and tablecloths into strips, form the strips into a cord, then tie the cord firmly on the window frame, and after that, one should slip down with the cord and protect his palm with his end-ridge of a jacket. 6. If the neighboring house catches a fire, never open the door, just jump into the balcony, call for help or escape danger with the above-mentioned method. Otherwise, the hot air and the thick smoke will enter through inattention so as to suffocate the people. 7. When the smoke is too thick, don’t be panic-stricken. One should crawl forward on his knees and elbows because the fresh air always exists near the ground. Watch out! Breathe lightly. 8. If one has to go upstairs, he should hold your breath. That’s because the speed of smoke is 3.5 meters per second, while the speed of going upstairs by man is 0.5 meter per second. 9. When fleeing, one should cover your mouth and nose with a damp towel, and also can damp your clothes and others to cover his mouth and nose with the water in the jardinière, canteen and goldfish bowl. When fleeing with a baby, one can cover his face with a damp cloth, and then he should flee in the way that one hand touch the ground to march forward, and at the same time the other hand is holding the baby. 10. Before fleeing away, one should shut the door of the house that catches a fire. Especially in the building and hotels with many tenements, it will gain valuable time for himself and everybody to adopt the measure, which can block the flame and the thick smoke in one room so as to prevent them from growing like a weed.

  • Guard houses against an electric fire

    In recent years, more and more electric appliances were installed and used by families, such as the air conditioner, micro-wave oven and VCD player, etc.. And all this raises the consuming electric total power. In our country, the power supply lead of the commonly residential building’s house is designed to bear 6 to 10 amperes, and the total load can’t exceed 1000 to 1500 watt-hours. When the total load exceeds 2000 watt-hours, the possibilities of fire caused by short circuit and the ammeter burnt do exist. From the analysis of fires that has happened in recent two years in Shanghai, about half of the fires were caused by the overloaded short circuit and the poor contact, etc.. Then how to use the electricity in safe in residential houses? I think that the key is to do well the following points: 1. The layout of switchboard. The switchboard has a fuse box, and the fuse box has installed a fuse wire. When the numerical value of the electric current that passes through the fuse wire exceeds the safety value limits, the fuse wire will fuse. Therefore, never arrange the switchboard above the combustible goods so as to prevent the broiling melted drops from lighting the goods. The fusing current of fuse wire is always 1.5 to 2.0 times as much as the rated current. When the electricity is normally being used in houses and the total power of all electric appliances can not exceed 1100 watt-hours, the fuse wire of 5 amperes is just good. When the current that passes through exceeds 7 amperes, the fuse wire will fuse automatically so as to reach the purpose of protection. If the chosen fuse wire meets the standards and yet often fuse the electric current or the electric appliances often sounds a little, we should search the reason in time so as to eliminate the hidden dangers. Do remember not to substitute the fuse wire with the thick one or even the copper wire and the iron wire, and it will not play the role of protection. The choice of monophase watt-hour meter should also be based on the total electric power. As long as the total power can be guaranteed not to exceed its own rated current of ammeter, it will be right. In addition, if the condition permits, the house can also be installed with the earth leakage protective device. Once an accident of electric shock occurs, the device can operate in time and cut off the current. 2. The choice of electrical wire. At present, the circuitries used in many houses are laid several decades ago or even earlier, and can’t meet the requirements of modern household electrification. Firstly, the insulating layer of wire has been gradually loosing and aging for being used for several decades, and this will lead to leak slightly. The leakage will also lead to a serious consequence of a fire caused by the short circuit. As a result, the electric wire should be changed regularly. Furthermore, the electric load has a requirement for the wire. If the total amount of consuming electricity is under or equals to2200 watts (10 amperes), when using the light, TV and air conditioner and other appliances at the same time, it will be overloaded to use a 500 watts electric iron and will also become very dangerous to use one more micro-wave oven. Under the circumstance of overloading, the aging speed of wire insulating layer will become fast. If the heat released by electric core makes the temperature of insulating layer exceed 250ºC, the electric wire will catch a fire. Therefore, the choice of electric wire must be based on the electric current. At last, the right style of lead will be chosen according to different conditions. In a dry house, the common insulating lead can be adopted, while in a moist house, the insulating lead with a protective layer should be adopted, such as the wire with an aluminum layer and the wire with a plastic sheath, etc.. To those electric equipments, which are often moved, the soft wire should be adopted, and so on. 3. The reasonable layout of electric wire. Soon after one resident entered into and lived in his house which had been just decorated, the house caught a fire. Through investigations, the reason was found that when decorating, the navvy directly laid the electric wire in the dado, and the short circuit lighted the dado. If the electric wire is laid visibly, its insulating layer should be avoided being damaged. When going through the combustible surface, the electric wire should be pulled on an lightweight anti-flaming sheath. In the house with suspended ceiling, the electric wire in the suspended ceiling should be the wiring in metal pipe. In order to avoid being damaged, the electric wire that need to go through the wall should be protected in the hard plastic pipe, and the two ends should protrude about 1 cm from the wall. 4. Use the household electric appliances properly. After using of TV and radio-recorder, etc., you should not only turn off their switches, but also pull out the power plugs. The reason is that the power switches of many kinds of electric appliances are designed near the margin of transformers, and the inner loops of transformers will lead to short circuit or be carbonized with the insulating layer once the plugs are not pulled out, then the fire breaks out. In addition, the capacitance and the voltage fluctuate greatly in our country. When being in the low-lying valley of consuming electricity, the power pressure of 220 volts can reach a maximum value of 250 volts. This will lead to a phenomenon that some electric appliances will be burnt, which don’t have the capacitors with enough pressure value. Therefore, the voltage stabilizer should be installed additionally in this kind of circuit.

  • Guard houses against theft

    1. The building should be equipped with an anti-theft iron door. The old-fashioned bungalow should be equipped with an anti-pry angle iron on the lock so as to form “a double insurance lock”. The enclosed court and “one gate multi-households” should install the general lock. The tenement with good condition should install an alarm device. 2. The windows of the ground floor and being along the street should install the grill. The distance between the rods won’t exceed 15 cms.. and the transom windows and the exhaust windows should be reinforced. 3. The cash should not be deposited too much in one’s house, the rest cash can be deposited into the bank, and the account number of the deposit book should be taken down. 4. The cash, jewels, deposit books, securities and valuables should be deposited in some places where aren’t easily discovered by other peoples. 5. Neighbors should take care of each other. If discovering any suspect, one should inform the local police station or dial “110” to inform the police.
