An emergency situation like a fire, earthquake or worse will never arrive with a warning. This is why you should always be ready for emergencies. First aid trainings and drills are things that people learn in their schools or any organisation they are associated with. Here are a few things that should be present in the house, office or any building for the safety of all:
- First-aid boxes: First aid boxes turn out to be really helpful in cases of small or large wounds and mild sicknesses. During fires or small earthquakes, people tend to rush and push each other, thereby causing injuries. Having a first aid box handy will help you to treat minor wounds immediately.
- Fire extinguishers: Fire can spread from a tiniest match stick. You can prevent the death and injury of the people by keeping a fire extinguisher, and making sure that the people are properly trained on how to use it.
- Emergency exit signs: First of all, you have to try to make the gateways of your establishment as large as possible, especially if it holds a large number of people. Secondly, make sure the entry and exit signs are large and visible. This will help people to escape the building sooner and avoid rush and stampede.
- Smoke detectors: Smoke detectors will help to warn other people before the fire spreads by sounding an alarm as soon as it detects smoke. This reduces the chances of casualties by letting people escape before fire spreads. Smoke detectors also make sure that no one smokes cigarettes within the premises.
Always have the emergency assistance number handy. When you see any mishap, make sure you call the emergency assistance number for quick help.
