What NOT to do After a Fire
Fires are dangerous, even in the aftermath. It’s pertinent that you know what to do, and more importantly, what NOT to do after a fire breaks out in your home or business. There are a few very critical actions you should avoid when dealing with a fire outbreak, remember these four fire don’ts:
DO NOT enter the building until you are given professional advisory that it is safe to do so.
DO NOT turn on any gas, water, or electric utilities until a professional has assessed the severity of the situation.
DO NOT start or move any vehicle that has been impacted or affected by the fire.
