Fire safety advice

In today’s ultra P.C. nanny culture the posters informing you what to do if there is a fire might as well not be there. As such I’ve decided to provide some practical tips on fire safety.

  • If the fire alarm goes off, ignore it, it’s probably a test.
  • If there is a fire, don’t walk – run! There’s a fire for god’s sake!
  • Go back for personal possessions – you don’t want them to get burnt.
  • If you are in a high rise building, use the lift, it will be quicker to escape the fire that way
  • Bare in mind vulnerable groups such as children and the elderly. They may not be able to move as fast so you may need to push them out of the way.
  • If the fire is small, just run for it, there is no glory in putting it out. Only attempt to tackle large blazes in which you stand a chance of getting on the front cover of The Express.
  • Remember, safety first – wait until you are a safe distance away from the fire before attempting to take a picture with your phone and send it to TwitPic.
