Kill Fire before the Fire Kills You
The term “Safety” is a six letter word that gives birth to the three “L” words; “Life Lasts Long.” As we all know, Safety is the condition of being Safe that means to be protected from harm. The proverb Prevention is better than cure is well suited to us in our daily sphere of life. It is the good example to us that even our misfortunes can be changed to the good fortune only if we take necessary precautions. Safety is the ABC of our life and cure should be the last option. Here the ABC stands for “Always Be Careful.”
Fire is one of the beautiful things that we could see in this world. But playing with fire will eventually turn bitter. It is said that “A tiny spark of fire can bring down a great forest into Ashes.” Being said so; we should prevent fire coming out from its designated places. There are many precautions that can be taken to prevent huge damages caused due to fire.
Recent studies and reports have revealed some interesting facts. The following information was provided by the National Fire Protection Association.

- 112000 of those fires were in public or commercial buildings.
