Although hotel fires happen occasionally, but they can impose serious effects to your hotel guests. Travellers should take extra care and must be alert of some basic information on what to do in case of fire especially during their vacation. Though guests can be booked in a convenient hotel in Sukhumvit, catastrophes like this can eventually happen.
If you want to stay safe when booking a hotel room, you need to ensure you stay no higher than the fifth floor. This will protect you in case of fire when fire engine ladders can possibly reach you. Higher floors are higher to reach especially that the ladders have a certain limit in size and length.It’s always better to be safe than sorry.
You also take with you a small, battery-operated smoke detector when you travel. You can hang it on the doorknob from the inside of your hotel room door. Or you can put it on a chair or piece of furniture just near your hotel room door. Now you are certain that there is alarm in case of smoke in the hallway.
Always check to see the closest fire extinguishers situated on every floor. If you are booked in a convenient hotel in Sukhumvit, be aware where the fire exit is located as this will bring you to safety in case of emergency. Never use the elevators in case of fire as they can be extremely dangerous and trigger a trap during fire.
If you smell smoke, or the detector alarms for smoke, don’t rush to open the door and rush out into the hallway. Touch the door knobif it is hot or feels hot. If it does, get down on your knees and open it slowly. If the hall is filled with smoke, crawl to the nearest stairs and escape the hotel as quickly as possible. If the hotel door is hot to touch, never open it. Instead get some wet towels and cover up the space at the bottom of the door with them. You need to fill the bathtub with cold water. In times of emergency, you need to take down the blinds, drapes or curtains and let people down below know that there are people trapped inside. Stay in the bathroom until the danger is over or when help arrives.
