Update: June 10, 2013Dealing with Earthquakes Series No.5
(1) When you felt a quake
If the initial quake is not too strong, put out the fire immediately. Make a habit of putting out fire even with a small quake.
(2) When a quake settles down
It is more dangerous to go near the fire in the middle of a strong quake. Wait until the movement settles, then put out the fire.
(3) When fire breaks out
The first 3 minutes after the fire breaks out is the most critical time. Even for the small fire, shout to neighbors for help and call 119. Utilize any ready material besides fire extinguisher or water, such as a wool blanket, to put out fire. However, when the fire reaches the ceiling, evacuate immediately. Close the door and windows of the room with fire to cut out the air supply.
1. Put finger through safety pin and pull upward.
2. Release hose and aim for the base of fire.
3. Push lever hard to shoot out the agent.
4. Move hose from side to side.
5. Face against the door to keep the passage clear from smoke and extinguisher agent.
