Fire Safity Night in Killybegs Station


Your Fire Escape Plan

Preparing and practice a plan of action will help you to act quickly if there is a fire. Everyone who lives, or is staying in your home should know this plan, and it helps to go through it with your family or anyone else that lives or stays with you including children, older people and lodgers.

 

  • If a fire starts the priority is to get everyone out and call 112. Don’t try to fight a fire yourself.
  • Put a reminder of what to do on the fridge door or notice board.  
  • Make sure everyone knows where the keys to doors and windows are kept.  
  • Choose an escape route. The best route is usually the normal way in and out of your home. Think of any difficulties you or the other people in your household may have and prepare for these.  
  • Choose a second escape route as well and keep both these routes clear. Remember – if you live on a ground floor, a window could be used as an escape route. 
  • Plan the order that you will escape in, so that if you have to go out of a window you can help others out (ground and first floor only).
  • Choose a safe room. If you can’t escape you will need to find a room where you can wait for the Fire Brigade. A safe room should have a window and a telephone.

 

 

Smoke Alarms

 

A working smoke alarm is essential. It provides vital early warning and extra time to escape if there is a fire. They cost around €10 - €15 and can be bought at most supermarkets, DIY stores and electrical equipment shops.

 

Most fires happen at night while people are asleep.  Smoke from a fire can actually put sleeping people into a deeper sleep, it may not waken them. By installing smoke alarms you will have early warning devices, which give you time to act before you and your family are overcome by dangerous smoke and fumes.

 

Four detectors should be installed in the average home.

 

Make sure that all smoke/heat alarms are properly installed and maintained.  

 

Test the alarms every week and their batteries every year.
