Reach for your safety blanket
Sometimes, depending on the environment, a fire extinguisher is not the most practical way to put out a fire. Fire blankets, which are easily accessible are perfect for use in homes, kitchens and larger commercial or industrial applications. Made from fire-retardant material, fire safety blankets can be used to completely cover a fire as soon as it begins, by smothering the flames, cutting off the oxygen supply and putting the fire out.
Easy to use, and convenient to store, fire blankets should be included within any effective protection plan. Why not consider them for yours?
How to use your fire blanket:
- Ensure all gas / electricity is switched OFF
- Hold the fire blanket by its straps
- Ensure your hands are well protected and your sleeves / clothing are out of the way
- Cover the fire with the blanket completely
- If unsure about any of these steps, CALL THE FIRE BRIGADE
Fire blankets can be used to wrap around a person if a fire unfortunately spreads to their clothes. It is important to note that in serious situations like these, it takes a matter of seconds to make the difference between life and death. Therefore, it is vital that everybody in your premises understands how to use the equipment which is available.
