When people mention insurance, you are either for it or not.
Some of us have health insurances, education insurance and for houses now you also have fire insurance. But I am talking about another kind of insurance.
We had a talk on fire that day in our office. It was kinda interesting. He asked what we would use to put out a fire on someone. Sand, water, blanket or roll. And he showed us the outcome of what would happen to the person's body if we used any of the 4 methods. I was kinda disgusted when I realised that if you pull a blanket off the person, their skin will also come off! :(
He also showed us a video of how people were jumping off the ledge in their condo due to the toxicity of the smoke. I had to trun away when a pregnant lady climbed on the ledge and sat there for a while debating whether to jump or not.
At the end of the talk, he did mention that his sponsor sells fire equipment. I bought a fire extinguisher (1kg), 2 fire masks and 1 fire alarm for RM667. It's at a discounted rate and the extinguisher does not need maintainence for the next 15 years. And if we ever use it in this next 4 years, the company will give us a new replacement FOC.
But I didn't buy it coz of the bandwagon mentality or coz I was gullible. But I am an insurance kind of girl. And I rather be safe than sorry. Since I move into this new house, I have been thinking of getting one. So, this came late but better than never.
Also, I will be installing hooks by the window and balcony grill to hang the keys. I have been thinking of doing this for a while but have been putting it off.
