In the Transcarpathian region, an increase in the number of fires was recorded in comparison with the previous year. This is alarming for employees of the Office of Public Service for Emergencies. Therefore, rescuers once again remind citizens about the rules of conduct during a fire in a house or apartment. First, you should not panic, you need to call the rescue service at number 101 and also inform the neighbors about the danger.
If possible, you should extinguish the fire with the help of available tools - a bucket of water or a fire extinguisher. At the same time, windows and doors should not be opened, since the access of air increases the fire.
If it is impossible to eliminate the fire before the arrival of fire departments, it is necessary, together with other residents of the house, to go outside using stairways or fire escapes between the balconies. It is forbidden to go down using the elevator, as an electrician may turn off at any time. During the transitions through the smoky areas should hold your breath, so as not to poison carbon monoxide. On the street you should call firefighters and the need for doctors.
