For safety and fire prevention, MEA advises all residents to inspect and monitor home appliances, electrical wires and plugs, making sure they are in good condition and safe. If you find a damaged item, get it fixed immediately. Always switch off and unplug your appliances when not in use. Avoid plugging too many devices in one outlet as it may be overheating and unsafe. Be careful while using electricity,especially heating equipment, it should be checked regularly - always switch off power after use and do not increase its temperature too high. Shut off a gas supply after cooking. Never leave burning incense or cigarette unattended. Appliances such as televisions andrefrigerators, allow some space from the wall for proper ventilation. Make sure you have a standard fire extinguisher suitable to the size of your home and learn how to use it effectively.
