How to prevent and deal with fires In Your Workplace and Residence?

To prevent and overcome fires not only the responsibility of the Fire Department, the public is generally obliged to participate in preventing and overcoming the danger of fire, especially in the work environment or in their homes by doing the following:

Familiarize checking electrical equipment in the work environment or residence, for example by:
1) Repairing any loose joints, because loose joints can cause the cable to heat up and then burn;
2) Avoid the use of nonstandard installations or cables;
3) Adjust the size of the cable with the needs including the amount of current to be used;
4) Avoid using stacked plugs;
5) For those who use gas stoves, if there is a smell of gas leaking or by removing the gas regulator from the tube, immediately open all windows or doors so that gas leaking in the room can come out, do not try to turn on or turn off the lights or electrical equipment installed because it can cause sparks and can directly grab into the gas that is already in the room due to leakage. If the light around the gas stove is on “don’t turn off the electric light and if the lamp is dead, don’t turn it on;
6) Do not let the candle or the lamp keep burning when going out of the house and do not place the candle on a flammable object, you should use a base;
7) Keep an eye on the use of electrical equipment is not recommended to use too much electricity, for example taking a current from one point or using a stacked plug;
8) If you still use a kerosene stove it is not justified to add the stove oil to the stove on;
9) Fill the generator oil when the day is still bright (morning / afternoon or evening) so that it is easier to monitor if when filling the fuel into the Genset engine there is a spill on the engine or on the floor. Fuel spills on the Genset engine can be dangerous if the Genset is turned on, most likely there is a spark from the busy engine which causes a sudden fire;
10) We recommend that you set up an emergency lamp at home rather than using candles or lamp lights;
11) Do not get used to using a laptop on a bed or a bed because the laptop will be hot because the heat from the cooling fan does not come out and is prone to fires, especially when you leave or you yourself fall asleep;
12) Avoid leaving cigarette butts in an ashtray or putting and disposing cigarette butts, making sure that the cigarette butts are completely dead;
13) Keep an eye on the use of mosquito coils, not too close to the bed or under a clothes hanger, because it may happen that the clothes you hang will fall into mosquito coils at any time;
14) Prepare Light Fire Extinguishers that are ready to use in the work environment or at home and use if at any time needed to extinguish the fire;
15) Be aware of the surrounding environment by conducting simulations in the work environment;
16) Check all supporting equipment for prevention and mitigation of fire hazards in your environment such as fire extinguishers, fire hydrants, fire detectors and fire alarms that you have. If the building does not have the infrastructure facilities as above, it is recommended that immediately complete it according to the requirements and applicable provisions;
17) Don’t burn trash in the hot sun or in high winds;
