What To Do in Case of Fire

It’s also important that you have a clear idea what to do in case a fire does occur.

  • Know your company’s emergency procedures and your role in them.
  • Sound the alarm so the building occupants can escape.
  • Proceed to the designated assembly area outside the building.
  • If you are trained to do so, you might be able to fight a small fire with a portable extinguisher. Choose the right extinguisher for the type of fire, and keep a clear escape route.
  • As you leave, shut down machinery or process equipment according to your company’s emergency plan.
  • Take fire drills seriously. They are organized to save lives and property in case of the real thing.
