General Human Disasters - 1 - Lesson Summary

Fires disasters are mostly man-made and caused due to negligence and lack of maintenance.

Causes of sire:
  • Household fires are quite common and are caused mostly of carelessness
  • Electrical wiring should be checked regularly to prevent house fires caused by short circuits
  • Defective gas cylinder with leaks may explode on lighting the stove

Military ammunition depots are also prone to accidental fires. Forests are also prone to man-made fires which occur due to the carelessness of man. Fire can occur indoors as well as outdoors.

Fire preventive measures:
  • Keep inflammable matter at home and a fire extinguisher handy
  • Remember to switch off all the electrical gadgets and the gas before going outside
  • Keep match boxes out of reach of children and restrain smoking in the house
  • For quick getaway in case of fire, ensure that all exits like doors are easily accessible
  • Call the fire brigade immediately without wasting a single moment
  • Try to crawl because smoke is always less near the floor

The government has its own share of do’s and don’ts. It contributes to the safety of its people through stringent checks against violation of safety norms.
