DIVISION OF YOUTH CORRECTIONS
  • Fire Safety
  • Prevention, Exit Drills and Hazards

2
Fire Prevention
  • The Fire Triangle identifies the three
    components of any fire
  • Fuel paper, wood, flammable gas, energized
    electrical equipment, etc...
  • Energy (heat), sufficient to support combustion.
    Often referred to as the ignition source.
  • Oxidizer (air)
  • IF ANY ONE OF THESE IS MISSING, A FIRE CANNOT
    CONTINUE.
  • THEREFORE

3
Prevention
  • Prevention is based on eliminating or minimizing
    one of the components of the Fire Triangle.

4
Prevention
  • Other fire prevention methods include
  • Heat and/or smoke detectors.
  • Automatic fire sprinkler systems.
  • Kitchen hood systems.
  • Building codes and materials.
  • Flame retardant furnishings and materials.

5
Exit Drills
  • DYC requires monthly fire drills conducted in all
    occupied locations of the facility including
    school buildings/areas.
  • The fire drills should include staff from all
    shifts on a rotating basis (i.e. one per shift
    per quarter).

6
Evacuation
  • Primary and secondary evacuation routes should be
    established, and all employees and juveniles
    should be drilled to use either route.
  • Exits should be clearly marked and all signs lit
    and unobstructed.

Remember to RACE during a fire
  • R escue rescue clients in immediate danger.
  • A lert yell out Code Red/Fire (or whatever
    your facility implementing procedure dictates),
    pull fire alarm, dial emergency phone number.
  • C ontain Close all doors and windows.
  • E xtinguish/Evacuate Extinguish small fires,
    evacuate clients, if appropriate.

    extinguisher - P.A.S.S.
  • Pull the pin.
  • Aim the nozzle.
  • Squeeze the handle.
  • Sweep side to side at the base of the fire.
  • NOTE If, when using a fire extinguisher, the
    fire is physically larger than you can safely
    handle, evacuate the area and notify others by
    activating the emergency pull station and call
    911.

    evacuation plans.
  • Smoking is prohibited in all state buildings and
    vehicles.
  • Staff may smoke only outside the buildings in
    designated areas.
