Fire Safety Do’s and don’t’s

Fire is always a dangerous thing which should be handled carefully. If not handled carefully, it can cause major harm to the property, life, things, etc. Destruction can be caused because of carelessness or either by nature. Some forests and places catch fire naturally and a huge part of land and life gets destructed. Fire is not a thing to be played with. People playing stunts with fire sometimes either hurt themselves or become the reason of mishappenings around them. Carelessness with electrical appliances and power supplies can cause great harm to property, place, and life.

Precautions should be taken to prevent such disasters or mishappenings.
