The basic knowledge of fire triangle is very important. If somehow you need to leave something burning, then you make sure the fuel will burnt out without causing major fire.

I think having fire extinguisher at home is better, if there is any fire still can use it to stop the fire before it becomes out of control. But too bad you need to keep changing the fire extinguisher due to short expiry date.

Is it expensive or allowed to install sprinklers in HDB apartments?

Just get an extinguisher lah!..... you want your house to look like a factory or warehouse izzit with low ceiling already

 

Some people also keep one in their cars too (especially those classic cars which Insurers dont cover fire and theft)

buying fire extinguisher is like buying insurance.

you can do without one

but when you need it, it's too late.

 

I have a fire blanket for oil fire and a regular dry powder extinguisher.

 

It's not expensive, less than $100.

Should make all those PMD riders liable for damages for fire that are caused by PMD charging, hence 3rd party insurance is needed.

Would be "interesting" to do for 1 HDB apartment unit, as sprinkler systems are usually systems for the whole building.

 

If windows are closed and electric sockets are off, HDB units don't catch fire unless there are dangerous equipment around.

 

Provided that there are people at how.
