We all pay taxes. Buy a candy bar, and you pay taxes. Purchase Microsoft from Bill Gates and you’ll pay taxes. Taxes are threaded through every aspect of life and business. It would be nice not to be taxed, but on the other hand, without taxes we’d have no sewers, no fire protection, no military, no roads, or no police. I guess taxes aren’t that bad.
The most obvious benefit from standpipes is fire protection services. You can have peace of mind when one of these systems is installed in your own building. At least you are sure that when a fire breaks out, you have a reliable first line of defense that keeps you away from harm or lets you escape with minor injuries. Stairwells and other paths that serve as escape routes are also kept clear from any obstruction.
If your house has a second floor, escape ladders should be placed near the windows. Let your children practice using this fire safety exit. If there are small children, then let them practice from the first floor window so they will have a clear idea on what to expect in case a fire does break out. It is anticipated that a power outage can occur in a fire breakout. Teach your children how to find their way into the dark by blindfolding him and letting him feel his way into a room.
Do you know the water plug? It is a fire protection tool. The main function of the water plug is to control the inflammable matter and eliminate ignition source.
What size are you looking for? What are you trying to protect? Your home safe should be big enough to fit things like important documents (birth certificates, passports, social security cards, credit cards, wills, tax returns, business papers, insurance documents, photos, etc); digital media (CDs, DVDs, memory sticks, GPS systems, MP3 players, cell phones, etc), and valuables (family heirlooms, jewelry, cash, video/camera equipment, collectibles, etc).
Prevention is the key to avoid harm. Fire fighting may be good because it stops the worse from happening. However, would it not be even better if it never happened at all? There are different guidelines to ensure safety in all situations and identify things that are risk for starting fire.
It is never a good idea to leave outside lights on when away from home or after going to bed. An electrical short can cause a fire to burn quickly. The state of Georgia has one of the higher incidences of home fires by electrical malfunction than other states.
