    Fire safety in a Thailand home.

    Almost a year or so I bought a battery powered smoke alarm from HomePro and installed it in my bedroom. It seems to work with my periodical cigarette test.


    But, I have the backup means until the Thailand Fire Department arrives.


    But as I have lived in Thailand for a year or so, I have my backup.


    And you?

    Hb don't check it with cig smoke use the built in test button do it once a month, its also a good idea to have a fire blanket in the kitchen and remember if it is an electrical fire do not use water to put it out you will need a powder filled fire extinguisher. The smoke detectors are no good in your bedroom either you need early an warning. The ideal setup would be 2 smoke detectors 1 on the ground floor and 1 on the first floor landing. Both off them ceiling mounted.

    I have smoke detectors on all three levels of my house and keep a fire extinguisher by the kitchen. The only thing I still worry about is that there is only one escape route from the upper level bedrooms -- if that is blocked, the only windows open up to a drop onto a hard deck. I've thought about the nylon fire escape ladders that can be thrown out the window -- I think they run about $60 US.

    hillbilly,
    You should also buy yourself a fire-blanket and teach the missus how to use it.
    Most fires start in the kitchen from a frying pan.
