The Fire Handbook is back, once again with the aim of educating readers (be they end-users or fire engineering professionals) about the principles of successful fire solutions - be they for prevention, detection or suppression of fire.
How equipped are you to handle a fire at your workplace? Or even at your home? Not just from a first aid perspective, but regarding the technology and equipment that goes into preventing, detecting or suppressing flames. The recent fire in the Johannesburg CBD really got me thinking!
I have heard a few stories about people focusing so much on keeping criminals out of their property that they seemed to not even think about how anyone would get out of those same properties should the need arise. A simple example is burglar bars and security doors. Sure, they keep intruders out, but do they trap you inside a burning house because of their effectiveness?
Hopefully you never have to go through an experience like that but it is always better to be prepared just in case. I hope this Handbook equips you with some useful information on what to do and also how to do it.
