It takes roughly eight minutes for an unattended flame to swell to a massive structural fire. According to the National Fire Protection Association, fire departments around the world report structural fires every 64 seconds. A number of deaths are reported every year and the mortality rate keeps increasing. Those who do survive the fire, have to take care of the damage inflicted upon the property immediately.
Causes of Fire:
There are multiple causes of fire:
- The most leading cause of fire is leaving a stove or cooking equipment unattended
- Short circuiting in electronic devices or faulty wiring
- Children playing with fire
- Putting fire to a garbage can
- Gas leakage and chemical exposure
- Things like cigarette and candles that have not been put out
Why Fire Safety Plans Often Fail to Work?
Unchecked fire safety plan: Your fire safety plan consists of two major systems which are often ignored:
- 1. Sprinklers: Sprinkler need to be inspected every six months to ensure that they are not waterlogged otherwise they won’t go off when the fire starts.
- 2. Fire Alarm: Often the batteries in a fire alarm die, because of this, it does not give out the signal when a fire incident occurs. Sometimes, the fire alarms are also disconnected or broken.
