Furniture Stabilizing Methods
icon-navigation-arrow-right-main
The most dangerous thing in an earthquake is falling furniture or items falling from high places and hitting people. Furniture safety for earthquakes should be checked and practiced regularly to establish good disaster preparation and response measures.The following are various furniture stabilizing methods:[Windows and glass items]You can stick shatter-proof membrane on windows to prevent the spread of broken glass.[Bookshelves]An L-bracket can be used to fix the bookshelf, which can effectively prevent the shelf from falling over. If holes cannot be drilled, use a support frame to fix the furniture to the ceiling and add slip-proof pads or mats to the bottom of the furniture.[Television]Place televisions at low heights where possible, and add slip-proof pads or mats to prevent sliding. Or, use metal chains or rope to fix televisions in place and prevent moving.[Stacked cabinets]Recommend using a L-bracket on the top cabinet to fix the cabinet in place, or use a support fame for the same purpose. Use metal connectors to connect the top and bottom cabinets.Add a locking ring or spring to the cabinet door to prevent the objects inside from falling out when an earthquake occurs.[Furniture placement]Furniture and beds must be kept at a safe distance apart to prevent furniture from falling and injuring people in bed in the event of an earthquake.Bookshelves and closets should be placed in a manner where, if they fall, they will not fall on beds. Trophies, aquariums, potted plants, and other heavy objects should be secured so that they do not slide or fall.

Fire Basic Science:Four Components
icon-navigation-arrow-right-main
The chemical reaction maintaining a burning fire requires four components, which are:A comburant(oxygen or air), heat (temperature), combustible material, and a chain reaction. Remove any one component and combustion cannot occur. Therefore, the basic principle for putting out a fire is to remove one of the components of the chemical reaction, so that the fire cannot be sustained. The following four methods can be used to put out a fire:1. Smothering: Separate the combustible material and the comburant (air). This can be done by:(1) Smothering with incombustible gas: spray incombustible gas (carbon dioxide or nitrogen (CO2 or N2)) into the burning material to separate the burning material from the oxygen.(2) Incombustible foam: when the foam comes in contact with the burning material, the foam will release steam (from evaporated moisture) while the foam itself will block off air supply. This can achieve effective separation.(3) Covering with incombustible solids: If the burning area is not large, then you can cover the burning area with sand, dirt, or other solid incombustible solid material to separate the burning material from the air.2. Cooling method: Dump water on the burning material to lower the temperature to below the combustion point.3. Removal method: Remove the burning material from the fire source to reduce the burning area. 4. Suppression method: remove the chain reaction. Introduce materials that can interrupt the chain reaction. This usually refers to the use of chemical agents, such as dry chemical extinguishers, on the fire to produce halogen (or alkali metal) ions and effectively removing hydrogen or oxygen from the fire and blocking combustion.

6 Keys To Escape From The Fire
icon-navigation-arrow-right-main
If you encounter a fire, how should you protect yourself? Taoyuan Disaster Education Center reminds you to keep in mind the 6 keys to escape to safety.Five Key "Do Nots":1.Do not delay your escape by collecting your belongings.2.Do not use the elevator to escape.3.Do not hide in the bathroom, since bathroom doors and ceilings are not heat resistant and unable to block out harmful smoke.4.Do not cover your head with a plastic bag, since plastic is not able to block out heat.5.Do not cover your mouth and nose with a wet towel; instead, use a towel, piece of clothing, or handkerchief, or other dry cloth article to effectively prevent inhaling smoke.And remember the "One Principle": Escape to the ground floor through a stairwell with fire doors or escape to a room that is relatively safe and close the door tightly to prevent smoke from entering.
