?Fire is a deity in many countries, worshipped and revered as a god. It is meant to purify objects, making it clean and pure and mould metals like gold into beautiful ornaments. So far, so good. But when left uncontrolled, fire can turn into a destroyer; it could threaten your life as well as property. Besides the destruction it causes to your property fire can bring about an emotional shock thats hard to recover from. And that is why you need fire safety equipment that can prevent and, if it occurs, extinguish fire. Fire safety equipments are crucial to any building, both residential and commercial. People nowadays use many items that are more prone to fire than others. The different gadgets, electronic items, kitchen appliances that you use daily are all quite easy to catch fire if they are left without proper care. Hence it becomes all the more important now than before to have some preventive measures to protect yourself and your house from fire. You can categorize fire safety equipments into two broad categories, fire prevention and fire extinguish. Following the well-known proverb prevention is better than cure, it is always better to prevent fire than trying to extinguish it once it starts. Items like smoke detection alarms help you in detecting fire that might break out soon. Carbon monoxide detector is another similar device that is easy to install and extremely useful. When it comes to extinguishing fire, there are different mechanisms ranging from simple fire blankets to huge pumps that spray liquids that can put off fire. These items let you stop fire from spreading and getting beyond the limits of control. As you know, once a fire breaks out it might take some minutes for the fire extinguishing service to reach your place. Those few minutes might be extremely costly and therefore must not be wasted with inaction. As important as the purchase of fire safety equipments is their maintenance. They have to be stored away from the reaches of children, at the same time they have to be accessible to you easily when there is an actual fire in the house. Similarly, make sure that they are not kept beyond their expiry dates and are renewed periodically. And last but not the least, make sure that you know how to use them as there would be no use of storing them unless you know the right way to use these items. This way, though you might not be able to prevent sudden fire break outs, you can definitely reduce the damage caused by them.
