    Recently there was a fire related incidents happened in a mall in Qatar. Fire related cases is high during summer season because of the hot temperature and much consumption of electricity. Note the following for your own protection especially at home.
    • Ensure that a good fire extinguisher is available at your home.
    • Don’t leave the children in the kitchen or nearby hot and burning materials or electrical power sources.
    • Don’t put on flowing dresses or nylon mixed wears in the kitchen in order to avoid catching fire.
    When fire breaks out in the oil pan:
    • Avoid pouring water into an oil pan as it ignites the fire.
    • Cover the burning pan by placing the nearest thick lid on the pan or cover it with fire blanket.
    When fire breaks out in the trash bin:
    • Cover the burning trash bin immediately with a damp cloth in order to prevent oxygen from igniting the fire.
    When you Smell Gas Odor
    • Immediately open all doors and windows to reduce concentration of leaked gas.
    • Never use a burning matchstick near a gas cylinder to locate the place of leakage.
    • Avoid switching on the exhaust fan for ventilation and don’t switch on lights as they may serve as points of ignition to the highly inflammable gas.
