Fireman's Prayer

When I am called to duty God wherever flames may rage Give me the strength to save some life whatever be its age help me embrace a little child Before it is too late or save an older person from the horror of the fate. Enable me to be alert and Hear the weakest shout and quickly and efficiently to put the fire out. I want to fulfil my calling and to give the best in me to guard my every neighbour and protect his property and if according to your will I have to lose my life please bless with your protecting hands my children and my wife. Amen.

EXIT DRILL

If a fire occurs in your premises, your safety will depend on calm, rational action.

An escape plan can be your key to a safe way out.

FIRE ESCAPE PLAN

An escape plan is a strategy for a safe exit from your home, office, factory etc

DESIGNING AN ESCAPE PLAN

  •  Draw the floor plan of your premises (home, office, factory etc.) on a piece of paper

  • Post your plan where it can easily be seen (refrigerator, behind your door)

  • Be sure to include:

All doors and windows

Primary and alternate exits

Emergency phone numbers

Outdoor meeting place

Special assignments (who will call fire service, sound alarm, check that everyone got out, etc.)

 Location of smoke detectors

 

HOLD FIRE DRILLS REGULARLY

Your plan may look good on paper, but will it really work?

Do regular drills to test your plan and adjust it as needed

Practice using alternate route (Doors and windows)

Children should practice getting out of windows (only under adult supervision)

 

SOME SURVIVAL TIPS

If you hear the smoke detector, smell smoke or someone shouting fire:

CRAWL TO THE DOOR on your knees and hands, not on your stomach, for fresh air

FEEL THE DOOR before opening it

If it is cool, brace yourself against it and open carefully.

If you notice smoke or heat, close it immediately.

USE  ALTERNATE EXIT – window if possible- if the door is hot or smoke comes through it

SIGNAL  FOR  HELP- by waving a sheet or any light coloured clothing if you cannot escape through the window

GO TO THE SAFETY/MEETING PLACE- to check that everyone got out and to meet the Fire Service

NEVER GO BACK INTO A BURNING BUILDING- Tell fire fighters immediately if someone is left in the building.

IF YOUR CLOTHES CATCH FIRE- in an attempt to escape, don’t run around. Lie down and roll around.

  1. Infants/children

  2. Hearing impaired

  3. Visually impaired

  4. Mentally Retarded
