Escape points

- Jun 07, 2018-

1. You cannot use the elevator to escape when a fire breaks out. After a fire, it is often easy to power off and cause the elevator to "snap." In addition, elevators pass through the building's compartment and a large amount of smoke enters the elevator passage. This can easily cause a “chimney effect”, in which people are smothered by smoke and gas and suffocate.

2. Take refuge in heavy smoke, try to lower your body, and use a wet towel to cover your nose and mouth; do not drill into small lofts, bed bottoms, and large cabinets while avoiding fireworks.

3. To master the basic methods of fire escape, to clear the surrounding environment of the house and the unit and to be familiar with the escape route.

4. To enter a strange place, pay attention to observation and choose an emergency escape route.

5. Do not jump blindly in the event of a fire. The buildings below the third floor can use ropes or tear sheets, curtains, etc., into strips, form ropes, and fasten them from the window by tightening them on window frames, radiators, and other fixtures. High-rise residential buildings should be equipped with descending equipment, ropes and other escape equipment.

6. Downstairs caught fire. Upstairs personnel should not open the door to watch or hurry to escape downstairs. Close the door and use a soaked sheet curtain to block the door or stick the tape. If the door is hot, splash water to cool it.
