Posted by dreamflower on August 7th, 2019

Many fire incidents have occurred in the Cochin city that has wreaked havoc in the lives of people. Apartments and the other high-rise buildings are most affected and this is a cause of great concern. People living in flats in Kochi need to think ahead and be prepared in the case of a fire hazard. Residents and owners should be aware of fire safety in apartment buildings and join hands to keep the building secure.

The main causes of fire in flats are due to the less maintenance of the waste plant and the rising summer heat. In high rise apartment buildings, the smoke gets scattered within the building and never gets out. This increases the gravity of the situation. 

Many builders in Kochi have taken note of this and have already started taking steps to combat fire hazards.

  • During the evacuation ensure to feel doors for heat before opening them.

  • Stay low to the ground, especially your head, to reduce inhalation exposure in case of smoke exposure.

  • Prevent smoke and fire from getting into your room by using towels, blankets or spare clothes to block the gaps in the door if you are trapped in your room or building during the fire.
