When making my way out of the building and there are doors that would be able to close then I should do so as this could reduce the severity of the fire and may even cause the fire to go out, I should never try to put the fire out myself as this could cause more harm to myself. Once outside the building and I have made sure I am safe from any further harm and move anyone else away from the burning building, my next priority is to make sure that the fire brigade has been called and are on their way. I should then try and help others who have minor injuries or give support to those that are distressed such as the children. If I was in a situation where I was trapped inside the building where all the fire exits were trapped, my priority would be to separate myself from the fire and to find a room with a window leading to outside, I would also need to close the door and block any gaps in the doorway with sheets and other things e.g. cushions/pillows to reduce the amount of smoke entering the
The public services would be unprepared for the potential incidents also no problems or area of improvement would be highlighted which would then occur during the response this which can result in the serious injuries and even deaths of those involved in the incident. Nothing form past incidents would be learned from because of the poor relations and communications between services. This is why Inter-agency planning and communication is vital when the public services respond to a major incident, allows the public service to respond efficiently and effectively to incidents which will save peoples life’s and prevent any further escalation of the

They have to evacuate as many people as they can from damaged building that are about to collapse or buildings that are on fire. They also have to perform safety checks on the area, so they and others from the other services are not harmed while being involved in the operation, then they are able to put out the fires. Depending on the incident, the Fire Service doesn’t just put out fires. In some cases, when buildings have collapsed on people in their cars, the Fire Service have used other equipment; such as ‘The Jaws of Life’, in order to cut people free from their cars. Lastly, the Fire Service also investigate the cause of the incident, whether it is to find out the cause of the fire or buildings collapsing, the Police would work alongside with them, because it is the Fire Service’s
Possible Priorities & Responses The first thing I would do in this situation is raise the fire alarm to evacuate everyone out of the building. At the same time I would get somebody to close the kitchen door to prevent the fire from spreading and to prevent smoke inhalation I would also get them to phone the fire brigade. After raising the fire alarm I would help service users evacuate the building in a safe way so that they are not at risk of being left in the building and getting any injuries or even death due to smoke inhalation or burns. Whilst evacuating the building, if I came across a closed door I would feel the door with the back of my hand. I would not touch a metal handle because it would be very hot.
Once that’s done the last thing to do is to use the up button to raise the bail so that it will fall on the pallet. But, make sure to stand off to one side away from the wires, because the wires could snap or come undone and cause serious damage to the employee or someone stand
Scenario 1:- Fire within a Nursing Home Within my scenario, I have stated that the residents in the nursing home would be required to go to the fire assembly point. By residents going to the fire assembly point it would prevent the residents becoming poorly because of smoke inhalation. By people doing this and reporting that there is a fire and fire brigades being on the scene, there would be more chance of people being saved, by this it would reduce the chances of people dieing also by people being at the assembly point, other professionals such as fire brigades and health care professionals would be able to have a clearer understanding on who is safely been evacuated and who and how many other people are still left in the effected building. By people going to the fire assembly point and ensure that people are not too close to the building as it may collapse, it would also make it easier for people to have a clear understanding on where everyone is and it would reduce the chance
He emphasizes the danger of doublespeak in order to get people’s attention. Through these consequences, readers will think about the importance of spotting doublespeak. He uses some examples which will happen in our daily life to convince people that doublespeak is around us and affects our lives. For instance, he claims that if acid rain is called “poorly buffered precipitation”, people will not care about the environment. People will think it is temporary but ignoring it will have already hurt the environment.
The ambulance and paramedics will need this because some people will get aggressive when the paramedics try and help them, this is because they may be frightened or confused, and knowing these signs will help the service to calm them down and use the best techniques available to them. The Fire Service has to deal with people in the same way as this, if they are injured and trapped in a car, they will have to calm the person down, so that they may begin extracting them from
Loss of Belongings: Care home entrance unsecured or receptions unmanned. Premises’ are open to bogus callers or thieves. Who enter and help themselves to residents and staffs personal belongings, equipment being stolen, may also face possible attack or abuse. Exposure to Danger: Fire exits should be kept clear. If fire exits are blocked in the event of fire residents, staff and visitors are prevented from finding a safe and clear evacuation route out of the building, leading to (the above) being trapped causing panic and confusion, resulting in deaths or serious injuries.
