The importance of a timely and well executed fire protection strategy cannot be ignored, especially when the flames are rising in the vicinity of a workplace, the results can be devastating.
Implementing safety in retail and household environment is very crucial, following the recent series of fire breakouts in Australia. Last year, there were 1,565 preventable house fires reported in Melbourne. They resulted in loss of lives and a property damage of almost $30 million. This highlights the risk of fire outbreaks and devastatingly fatal damage they can cause.
Although most of the fire extinguishers that are in place in Melbourne work in the same way, at Australia Fire Protection /AFP Groups, we recommend the user to check the instructions before deploying a fire extinguisher in the case of fire.
Knowing how to use a fire extinguisher can help keep you safe in an emergency while you wait for the help to arrive.
