Accidents happen here and there every day, like a fire disaster. Therefore, all of us need to improve our safety awareness. Besides, we should have a good command of the measures to protect ourselves when a fire disaster occurs.
In order to improve students' safety awareness, Guangzhou English Training Center for the Handicapped had a fire drill on March 21st at 4 p.m. In the very beginning, we were told how a fire disaster occurs and the dangers of a fire disaster. After that, our lecturer taught us how to use the fire extinguishers correctly, which was an important point to know if a fire disaster does happen. If we use fire extinguishers in the wrong way, it will be very dangerous.
However, if the fire is very fierce, we can't only use the fire extinguishers any more. Only with gas masks, can we protect ourselves from danger. The most important thing was that we were told that a gas mask can be used only once. Therefore, if we don¡¯t have enough gas masks at home, we can also use a wet towel, which has the same effect as the gas masks, to cover ourselves.
Last but not least, our school also prepared some gas masks for the students to do some practice that day. As far as I am concerned, this fire drill was very useful. We need to improve our safety awareness because we can't predict what will happen tomorrow, and our lives will never come back once we lose them.
