FIRE INCIDENCE IS RAMPANT THESE DAYS, WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE CAUSE?
The first problem most companies and homes have is the lack of awareness. A lot of people don’t know what causes fire. Another thing is that when houses are being built, they were not built according to the standard building code. If standard was not considered in the foundation of a building then occurrence of an accident such as inferno and building collapse is just a matter of time. We heard of building collapse every now and then and people die, we also heard that offices get burnt. But we’ve not been asking ourselves why all these accident continue unabated.
Let me educate you, there are three types of fire; these are petroleum fire, electrical fire and paper fire. So when a fire happens we should know how to tackle it. People use wrong fire quencher to tackle fire incidence and by so doing aggravate the accident. That is why I considered the increasing inferno incidence to lack of awareness and if there is lack of awareness to deal with fire there is a problem which may continue unsolved.
Aside that, fire extinguisher is a must for every office and home to get. There are offices which has no fire extinguisher and when there is electrical fire accident they try to put it off with water which can never be resolved. My take is that people should be educated on fire and there should be proper monitoring of buildings to avert fire and building collapse accident.
WHAT SECURITY APPLIANCES BEST PROTECT HOMES AND OFFICES IN THIS ERA OF INCREASED SECURITY THREAT?
I think technology has moved far and the typical one is that simple houses should have a panel system to arm their houses and offices. Such technological device has the motion sensor and magnetic contact; it also uses a GSM sim card that can connect to your phone, so that if you left your house, you can call the house and received messages if anybody opens the door. Such devices send an emergency message to you and local police station in your area, which you may have registered your interest with.
The device for example tells the police that Mr. Olushola Akinyele’s house front door has been opened, because it’s harmed already and the person that open the door is not authorized to open it. Once the person entered the house, it will send a notification that someone has entered the house, either through the door, wall, ceiling, etc because you can’t avoid the motion sensor. It will catch you. It’s about one hundred and twenty degree angle once you are in the premises it will pick you up and send the signal immediately.
