These instructions are designed to guide individuals on the appropriate actions to take during a fire emergency, such as evacuating the facility, using designated exits, and following specific protocols to ensure personal safety and the safety of others.

It outlines the steps to be taken when discovering a fire, smoke, or excessive heat. First, the priority is to rescue anyone in immediate danger. Then, an alarm should be raised to alert others and initiate emergency response. The next step is to contain the fire by closing doors or using fire extinguishers if safe to do so.

Taking the malfunctioning equipment out of service is also important to prevent any potential accidents or injuries. Therefore, the statement that equipment in questions of malfunction must be tagged and locked, and taken out of service is true.
