From household accidents to industrial events and moving up to natural disasters the first and biggest threat that comes in mind are fires.

Fires frequently occur in homes and offices, basically at the places we spend most of our time in. We believe that we can make a huge difference in shrinking the number of losses. It all starts with promoting awareness regarding fire hazards and how can we stay safe from it? In the event of a fire, we should remember that every second counts, so you and your family must always be prepared. But what do we need to do?

Prevention is the key. We need to know how to protect ourselves by using tips and tricks that might save our lives. One thing you should do is to install smoke alarms: they decrease your chances of dying in a fire by half. Place them on every level of your residence, including the basement. Test and clean them once a month and replace batteries at least once a year. You should replace them once every 10 years.

When you are cooking, make sure you never leave the kitchen unattended. Wear short or tight-fitting sleeves when you cook and keep towels, pot holders and curtains away from flames. Needless to say that you should never use the range or oven to heat your home.

About matches, lighters and smoking related activities, it is futile to say that these objects should be kept away from children. They should not be in the same room with you when you smoke. Also, under no circumstances smoke in bed or when drowsy or medicated. You should do it in a responsible manner in order to prevent fire disasters.

Regarding the electrical wiring, you should inspect extension cords for frayed or exposed wires or loose plugs. Make sure outlets have cover plates and no exposed wiring and also that wiring does not run under rugs, over nails, or across high traffic areas.

You can boast all this measures’ effects by using ICEBALL. You just have to put the ball on the wall or simple placed on a flat surface. It can be placed on a shelf, a table or any other visible, easy accessible surface. The most recommended places to put a fire ball are high fire risk areas such as kitchens, power switches, near fireplaces or overloaded outlets.

It will self-detonate in contact with fire. Within 3 to 10 seconds after the contact with the flame, the trigger inside the fireball detonates the fuse on the ball’s surface. An instant blast occurs and the chemical powder disperses over an area of 3 cubic meters (equivalent to a 2.5 kg standard extinguisher).

It’s all an act of few seconds but it can save your life with ease.

Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia.

Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen.
