Fire Safety Requirements for Residences!
Residential fires are the most common fires in the Philippines, claiming more lives than any other type of fire. For your safety, the residence halls should have fire safety equipment, procedures, rules, and expectations. Residents are expected to follow all fire safety procedures and requirements.
The information below will help you evacuate the building safely in the event of a fire, outline the rules and expectations that will prevent fires, and explain the safety equipment.
What to do if there is a fire
If you discover a fire, call the nearest fire station.
Use an extinguisher with caution and always stay between the fire and the exit.
If the fire becomes too large, close your door and leave your home at once. Be sure to wear shoes to avoid cutting your feet during the evacuation.
When smoke or heat is encountered, keep low or crawl to avoid inhaling toxic fumes.
When the fire alarm sounds, feel your room door to see if it is hot before opening it.
If the door feels hot or smoke prevents exit, keep your door closed and open a window until rescued.
Do not re-enter the building.
Fire prevention is of critical importance in a large community environment because so many lives are endangered by accidents or careless actions. The following list is an outline of fire safety expectations to keep you and your community safe.
