Apartments Safety – A Major Issue To Be Handled
Total Articles: 3
Apartment in Buenos Aires was on fire!!! What a shocking news it is!!! It is heard that it is a massive mishap due to gas explosion in the building… Around 11 people are still missing as said by a rescuing officer.
Engineers were trying their best to re-build the damaged column of the apartment and also were successful in their trial later.Angel Poidomani, federal police commissioner stated "Until we remove the last brick, we'll always expect to find people alive," Really his statements provided a great relief to the locales.
According to a source, “Authorities identified 10 of the dead, and by late Thursday rescuers were working to pull three out more bodies they had located in the rubble. More than 60 people were injured as Tuesday's blast rocked Rosario, Argentina's third-largest city, and several remained in critical condition.”
To avoid such circumstances the apartment builders as well as the tenants should take care of some safety measures which are mandatory for their safety.
Proper smoke alarms must be installed and maintained in all the houses in the building by the apartment builders. And the duty of the tenant is to verify the installation and functioning of the alarms. Also the alarm needs to be maintained by cleaning dusts regularly, replacing batteries once or twice a year.
2.Building Evacuation Plan:
In the buildings safety exit and fire escapes must be there and also the directions to these exits must be properly specified and marked on each floor. And the builders should keep in their minds to make more optional emergency exits so that if the primary exit is unable to rescue the other optional must help. Tenants must be aware of the Evacuation plans.
Each and every flat must have one fire extinguisher which is working properly and the family members must be aware of the usage of the extinguisher in appropriate manner. And these fire extinguishers must be refilled when needed so you can keep a reminder for that too.
4.Regular fire drills:
One drill every six months is recommended for handling fire emergencies and be aware of the evacuation plans so that they can safely exit during such emergencies.
To keep safe your fully furnished apartments in Buenos Aires in cases of natural calamities like earthquakes you need to keep some points in your mind for your own safety:
1.If you are inside the building during the earthquake then do not worry and hide under any sturdy furniture like table, bed etc. Or just rush to any strong end of the home where there are fewer chances of a collapse.
2.Do not try to move out towards the exit until the shaking resides.
3.Turn off all explosives in the house like stoves and other electrical appliances.
4.Do not run over the steps during the earthquake as the shaking frequency is higher at the steps during earthquake.
The most important thing you need to do is insure your property and appliances against fire, theft and other accidents that can harm them. If there is any fire or natural mishap which leads to loss of property and possessions, it can be claimed from the insurance company you chose.
