How do I use the fire blanket?
Back to FAQs
- In case of a fire, firstly, turn off the gas or electricity supply. Remove the fire blanket from its container, hold it by the fabric straps and to prevent burns on the hands and arms. Make sure you wrap the top edges of the blanket around your hands to protect them.
- Roll up your sleeves so they do not catch fire.
- Carefully cover the flames with the fire blanket, making sure that you cover the whole area so that you can effectively cut off the airflow and extinguish the flames. If the fire is larger than the blanket, do not attempt to put it out. Get out of the building and call the fire brigade immediately.
- DO NOT touch the fire blanket or anything underneath it until at least an hour has passed since the fire has been extinguished.
