Fire Safety Facts

Fire Safety Facts

  • Fire is fast! In less than 30 seconds a small flame can get completely out of control and turn into a major fire. It takes only minutes for thick black smoke to fill a house.
  • Fire is hot! A fire's heat alone can kill. Room temperatures in a fire can be 100 degrees at floor level and rise to 600 degrees at eye level. Inhaling this super hot air will scorch your lungs.
  • Fire is dark! Fire starts bright, but quickly produces smoke and complete darkness. If you wake up to a fire, you may be blinded, disoriented, and unable to find your way around the home you've lived in for years.
  • Fire is deadly! Smoke and toxic gases kill more people than flames do. Fire uses up the oxygen you need and produces smoke and poisonous gases that kill.
March is "Fire Prevention" month and every year, more than 100 Filipinos die in home fires. Thousands more suffer with the loss of house and valuables while hundreds are injured by fire.

Records showed that:
Year ~ Total Number of fire incidents
2006 ~ 8,823
2007 ~ 9,042
2008 ~ 7,726
2009 ~ 8,271

If a fire occurs in your home or office, your chances of survival will depend on how quickly and safety you are able to get out. "Don't panic"
  • Time is the biggest enemy and every second counts! Escape first!
  • Develop a home fire escape plan and practice it frequently.
  • In your fire escape plan, designate a meeting place outside.
  • Make sure everyone in your family knows two ways to escape from every room.
  • Practice feeling your way out with your eyes closed.
  • Never stand up in a fire, always crawl low under the smoke and try to keep your mouth covered.
  • Never return to a burning building for any reason; it may cost you your life.
  • Finally, having a working smoke detector dramatically increases your chances of surviving a fire.

Fil-Chi Businessman kidnapped in Quezon City

MANILA, Philippines—A Chinese-Filipino man was abducted in broad daylight in Quezon City Tuesday by still unidentified men wearing T-shirts with “Police” marks, police said on Wednesday.

Chua was abducted by four armed men wearing black shirts with “Police” printed on them.Chua was driving a Mitsubishi Lancer (with plate number WTH 188) on his way to work, when the suspects, on board a dark-colored vehicle (with plate number ZMC 216), blocked the victim’s path.

Police said that initial verification made with the Land Transportation Office (LTO) revealed that the plate number of the getaway vehicle was registered to another vehicle (registered in 2008 to an Isuzu car).

If Day

February 19, 1942, was a fascinating day for Canada. It was “If Day”—a World War II staging of a fake Nazi invasion of Winnipeg, Manitoba. The intent was to show what it would be like “if” Canada fell under the harsh occupation of Nazi forces, and so that Canadians would support the war effort more fully (a campaign of the federal government to raise $600,000,000 in Victory bonds to fund the war effort).

Participation in the event was excellent. Both the active and reserve forces, as well as numerous volunteer organizations, were involved in making If Day as realistic as possible. Col. D. S. McKay was the commander of the “defence” forces. RCAF planes were used as Nazi dive-bombers. Trucks, anti-aircraft guns and other military equipment were used during If Day.

"If Day" was conceived and organized by the Greater Winnipeg Victory Loan organization, which was led by prominent Winnipeg businessman J. D. Perrin as Chairman.
A sample of proclamations and commands plastered all over telephone poles, announcing Nazi supremacy and new civil rules:


1. This territory is now a part of the Greater Reich and under the jurisdiction of Col. Erich Von Neuremburg, Gauleiter of the Fuehrer.

2. No civilians will be permitted on the streets between 9:30 p.m. and daybreak.

3. All public places are out of bounds to civilians, and not more than 8 persons can gather at one time in any place.

4. Every householder must provide billeting for 5 soldiers.

5. All organizations of a military, semi-military or fraternal nature are hereby disbanded and banned. Girl Guide, Boy Scout and similar youth organizations will remain in existence but under direction of the Gauleiter and Storm troops.

6. All owners of motor cars, trucks and buses must register same at Occupation Headquarters where they will be taken over by the Army of Occupation.

7. Each farmer must immediately report all stocks of grain and livestock and no farm produce may be sold except through the office of the Kommandant of supplies in Winnipeg. He may not keep any for his own consumption but must buy it back through the Central Authority in Winnipeg.

8. All national emblems excluding the Swastika must be immediately destroyed.

9. Each inhabitant will be furnished with a ration card, and food and clothing may only be purchased on presentation of this card.

10. The following offences will result in death without trial
a) Attempting to organize resistance against the Army of Occupation
b) Entering or leaving the province without permission.
c) Failure to report all goods possessed when ordered to do so.
d) Possession of firearms.
