Is It Essential To Fireproof Your Home?
It's not something we talk about, nor wish for it to befall us, or anyone we know. But there's a growing need to fireproof our homes in recent times. According to a recent statement by the Fire and Rescue Department Director-General Datuk Wan Mohd Nor Ibrahim, households around the country should be equipped with at least smoke detectors in the kitchen and areas with electrical circuit, and a fire extinguisher. I'm guilty of not looking into this seriously yet, but it's worth a thought or two.
