Smoke can be dangerous when inhaled, and even result in poisoning when carrying toxins from chemical fires. Fire is extremely dangerous with fire accidents resulting in long term scarring and even death. Don’t allow children near matches or lighters. Be cautious with birthday candles. Keep guards in front of fireplaces. Check fire safety labels on clothing, bedding and other materials. Be aware of fire risks when driving, walking or camping in rural areas. It is mandatory to install a smoke alarm in all residences and buildings where people sleep. Add reminders in the calendar at the back of the Guide to periodically check alarm batteries, fire extinguishers and blankets. Familiarise and drill your family with the alarm sound and other warning signal (consider a whistle used solely for an evacuation purpose). Prominently display a map with your evacuation plan and designated meeting spot.
