We Can’t avoid disasters ! They can happen anytime ,anywhere! And unfortunately , many lose their lives every year. But Experts say if you know some apparently small,unimportant things ,your chance of reading the headlines about the disaster will increase!
If you are confronted with a fire:
Warn anybody in danger and do not stop to gather belongings.
In a house or in an apartment test the door for heat.
If smoke is coming out from underneath a door, fire is looking for oxygen behind the door. Instead seal out any openings around closed doors and go out from an alternate exit like a window and head the opposite direction of the flame especially in a wild fire.
If smoke follows you stay as low as possible and then wet your clothes or wrap a wet blanket around your body especially in a wild fire.
And if you are still trapped you need to signal for help: call emergency, or wave something like a piece of cloth outside the window.
If the flames reach you area make the final escape: jump out, or get to the pool or a stream around you. Watch out for hot streams. If there is no water in a wildfire dig a hole in an area free of bushes and cover yourself with dirt, sand or a fire proof blanket.
If failing , jump through the fire wall if possible with a wet blanket around you and cover you face with a shirt or arm an just run: locate an area with the shallowest flames
