Fire Safety This Winter In Zanesville

12/27/2021 (Permalink)

We often hear of the house fires in our community and band together to help our neighbors in need, but most of us like to believe we will never be in their situation. Unfortunately, fire can happen to anyone. Even those who take extra precautions to avoid them. When you hear your smoke detector go off, or realize you have a fire. It is important not to panic. You need to exit the building as quickly as possible closing all doors, and windows on your way out if possible. Always, check for heat before opening any closed doors. You do this by placing the palm of your hand on the door. It is also very important to stay as low to the ground as you can, because smoke rises, and smoke inhalation can be fatal. After vacating the building immediately call 911 so they can send your local Fire Department. If you are unable to get out there are things you can do to spare time while waiting to be rescued. Stay low of course, and get a wet blanket if at all possible to put over you. This helps prevent smoke inhalation. Always stay in one spot in an open area if  so the Fireman can find you. If you hear them calling for you make sure you make noise. If the smoke is not thick you can yell, but it is better to make other noises. You can bang on the wall, or floor, even blow a whistle if you have one. Try to wait by the nearest window, and leave all door ways clear. This is so the fireman get to you without anyone getting injured. After, the fire is over. it may seem like all is lost, but this is where SERVPRO can help. We specialize is fire restoration, and are trained to help you in your time of need.
