WHAT TO DO IN CASE OF A FIRE

Do not forget to inform your tenants / guests about the fire risks.

 

 

Before the season :

 

 

  • Keep clear scrub within 75m radius of all buildings and pool

 

  • Thin out and trim trees to maintain 3m distance betweem them and also buildings

 

  • Cut away branches lower than 2,5m

 

  • Clean out gutters, roof and ditches

 

  • Test all motor driven waterpumps and check fuel supply

 

 

 

In the event of a fire :

 

 

  • Except if told by the authorities to evacuate, do not leave the house, where you are safe

 

  • Do not set off by road in an attempt to escape the fire!!

 

  • Once the aerial water bombers are deployed the electricity supply will be cut off

 

  • Open all gates to the house to allow fire brigade access

 

  • Close all doors and shutters

 

  • Park cars inside or near a wall away from the wind

 

  • Take all gas bottles (and other incendairy items) inside

 

  • Take your pets inside and keep them away from smoke

 

  • Take waterpumps and hoses inside. They will be useful to put out little pockets of fire after the fire has passed

 

  • If smoke comes in the house block it out with wet towels

 

  • If the fire goes over the house you will hear a violent noise for a few minutes. When this noise fades, carefully go outside to put out any pockets of fire left. Be careful if the wind changes direction and the fire comes back again.

 

  • After the fire has passed inform family, neighbours, landlords.... that you are ok
