    The best way to put out a pan fire on the stove is by putting the lid over the pan. This method helps to cut off the oxygen supply to the fire, which is necessary for combustion. By covering the pan with a lid, the fire is deprived of oxygen and will eventually extinguish. This is a safe and effective way to quickly and efficiently put out a pan fire without the risk of spreading the fire or causing harm.

      In The Backyard

    • B.

      Kitchen

    • C.

      Basement

    • D.

      Garage, Or Approved Gas Storage Area

    Correct Answer
    D. Garage, Or Approved Gas Storage Area
    Explanation
    The best place to store gasoline is in the garage or an approved gas storage area. Storing gasoline in the backyard, kitchen, or basement can be dangerous as these areas are not designed to handle flammable materials. The garage is a better option as it is typically well-ventilated and away from living spaces. However, it is important to ensure that the garage is not attached to the house and has proper fire safety measures in place. An approved gas storage area, such as a dedicated shed or container, is even safer as it is specifically designed to store flammable materials.

    While being helpful, what device can also be a detriment when trying to escape a burning house?

    • A.

      Smoke Alarm

    • B.

      Sprinkler

    • C.

      Flashlight

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    D. Security Bar On Windows
    Explanation
    While devices like smoke alarms, sprinklers, and flashlights can be helpful in escaping a burning house by alerting people, extinguishing fires, and providing visibility, a security bar on windows can be a detriment. In the event of a fire, these bars can block or restrict access to windows, making it difficult or impossible to escape through them. This can trap people inside the burning house and prevent them from reaching safety.
