A protective life-saving fire blanket shroud made of light but strong flame and heat-resistant material for a quick grab-and-wrap around use in case of fire emergencies, firefighting and rescue work operations. A fire blanket is a handy and dependable fire protection outfit for homes, business establishments and barangay centers that is supplementary or complementary to the standard fire extinguishers.
Fire blankets should always be placed near an exit so they can be easily reached in an emergency. Do not place then near to cookers or in distances far away from exits for safety reasons. If you do throw a fire blanket onto the flames and they spread for one reason or another at least you know that the exit is near to you should you need to evacuate the premises urgently.
