In a previous post, you learned a few tips on how to create a disaster plan to keep you and your family safe in case of an emergency. This is why, in keeping with the theme of prevention and preparedness, in this installment you’ll find a few different ways in which you can deal with a small house fire. Hopefully, by following these steps you’ll be able to keep a mishap from becoming a full blown disaster.

How to Put Out a Fire

Evaluate the Fire

Start by assessing the situation: if the fire is too big, or if you’re feeling doubtful about your ability to deal with it, you’ll be better off exiting your home and calling emergency responders immediately.

Be Careful

Then, you need to remember to take some security measures: unplugging any devices nearby, making sure nothing flammable is near the fire, and shutting down the gas supplies are a few things you can do to stay safe.

Employ the Correct Method

Next up is acknowledging how the fire started. This will help you make a decision about which method to employ, since using the wrong one can only worsen the situation. You can use:

  • buckets of abundant water to put out the flames, unless the fire is electrical or related to oil/gasoline.
  • a large, thick blanket that will be able to cover the fire on its entirety and suppress its oxygen supply.
  • a fire extinguisher (though you may want to learn how to use it and what restrictions it has beforehand).

Do Some Damage Control

Once you’ve put out the fire, make sure to ventilate your home to let the smoke out.  Likewise, go through your belongings and see what can be repaired and what needs to be thrown out. Call a professional team to restore your home if necessary.
