It is essential that all employees be familiar with the proper use of portable extinguishers and know when and when not to use them. In the event of a fire, employees should respond in accordance with their company's fire-emergency plan. Most employees will evacuate. Certain trained and designated employees will evaluate the fire scene and, if the fire is small and conditions are reasonably safe, use a fire extinguisher to fight the fire. If the fire is large or conditions are unsafe, all employees will evacuate.
Fires are the leading cause of death in the home for children under the age of five The National Fire Prevention Association reports that of all the young children who died in home fires last year, fully one third set the fires that killed them. Children under the age of 12 set almost half of all structural fires. According to the Shriners Burn Institute, burn injuries are a major cause of death for preschoolers, and match play is a leading source of burn injuries.
Fire Safety for Seniors is critical as they make up the largest high-risk group for injury and death by fire. Every year in Canada, home fires claim approximately 500 lives. More than one-third of people who die in fires are 60 years of age or older. Changes in an older person's sensory and physical functions can make it difficult for them to detect or escape a fire. Many fire-related deaths and injuries among seniors are preventable.
