【雙語文章】Precautions in Public Places 防火防災進出公共場所應注意事項
The main element of major injuries and death during a fire in public places is due to mismanagement and lack of staff training. But aside from the responsibility of the operator over its fire safety, we should observe the following matters once we get into a public place for our own safety:
If the motorcycles are parked disorderly outside the place or if the style of motorcycle is weird, this means people coming in and out of this place are very complicated and the chance of having disputes or arson is big.
As much as possible, make your consumption as the lower floor, preferably at the ground floor.
Was the outside wall full of advertising or installed with steel windows? Was its internal furnishing mostly made of combustible materials?
Make an observation first, whether there are two or more fire exits or not. If there is only one exit, there is no way of escaping once there is a fire. Do not go to this kind of place. Those in the basement are especially hazardous.
Check whether the exit door is kept at its good condition. Exit door should not be locked. Once there is a fire, fire, smoke, and heat can be isolated in the source floor, and will not hit other flows to ensure that people can escape through the exit door and stairs successfully.
Is there any fire extinguisher, escape sling, indoor hydrant, etc. in the place? Where are these things installed? These should be installed at an obvious place so that they can be found easily and used when there is a fire.
Once you get into a private room or hotel, take one or two minutes to think what to do if there is a fire, and the escape route. Don’t hesitate once there is a fire. Take action immediately and escape.
