Every home higher then a single story needs a fire escape ladder to help keep your loved ones safe and secure. Most of us who are raising small children have had the thought of your home starting on fire ether it be in the middle of the night or some other time and have always worried about saving our children in the event of a horrible tragedy. We owe it to ourselves to take away the stress and worry and invest a small amount of money on a Fire Escape ladder. It is a sad fact that someone in the U.S. dies in a home fire every three hours, according to the National Fire Protection Association, which recommends one ladder in every occupied room on floors above the main level. If your children are old and responsible enough they should be shown how to use the device in the event of an emergency.
It is also recommended that each home or dwelling have a fire drill test in the event of an actual fire. We often teach our children not to talk to strangers or stay close to us when shopping in busy stores, but how often do we teach them what to do in the case of a fire, or emergency. You should teach everyone in your home or office how to exit out of your dwelling if they are higher then the main level. A simple test and practice once every three months is recommended. +team +building Teach your children not to panic, to call for help on the phone dialing 911, to stay close to the floor if the room is filled with smoke. Teach them to close the doors in the event of a fire and open up the windows and show them the nearest safety routes available to them. It is recommended that the fire escape ladder be used as a last resort when all other options are not possible. This means that all other travel routes are unsafe or unsure.
Remember that your dwelling should have fire extinguishers on all floors and smoke detectors in every room where you stay for long periods of time. They should be checked periodically, batteries should be checked and changed every time we move the clocks forward or backwards. Fire extinguishers need to be inspected. OSHA’s Fire Prevention standard requires all fire extinguishers to be “inspected” annually by someone trained to do that inspection. You should have your fire extinguishers inspected yearly by a safety company, which places month and year inspection tags on each extinguisher.
