Today's Safety at Home Lesson, for April 9, 2013.
Prevent Fire and Explosion in your toilet.
Always keep a Fire Extinguisher by your Toilet. Have it easy to grab,
and in open sight, ready to grab. Placing it next to the toilet paper
roll is a good location. You never know when there is going to be
spontanious combustion inside the toilet bowl due to flammable
flatulence. This can occur at almost any moment even without a source
of flame nearby. Of course you can often prevent this from occuring
simply by not smoking while you are using the toilet. Yet, given a
large amount of flatulence, even the most cautious person can have a
flash fire simply ignited by static electricity and/or other things
which can cause a spark. Even using a phone while on the toilet can
trigger enough of a spark to cause an explosion, not to mention
lightning, or electric appliances, as well as other sources of ignition.
A safe home, practices toilet safety!
