In case of Fire DO NOT JUMP OUT OF THE WINDOW!!! In caso di Incendio o emergenza Non Saltare fuori dalla finestra!!

In caso di Incendio o emergenza Non Saltare fuori dalla finestra!!

I believe this is a clear message!  I would like this sign to become one of the normally Fire Sign used in all Buildings like the one “don’t use the lift” etc. 

How many life have gone because people was trapped in a fire or other events?  I would say to far to many!  Today we have technique and technology that can help us in such situation, no matter how high is the building, you will be always able to safely repel down with the use of a rope.  

Consider that in 15 minutes over 15 people can evacuate form a unique Ancor point… and in the same time, if you are lucky, the firefighters and emergency teams will be just arrived.  Than, when you are over the fifth floor you won’t even  be able to evacuate with the fireman’s ladder,  … yes is too short!!… so you will have to wait until the firefighter can reach you by the inside of the building… but fire do not wait… a collapse of the building can happen any second… a dense and highly toxic smoke will be probably filling all empty spaces, burning out your oxygen reserve… etc etc …

Now consider… we are talking of a minimum of 15 minutes waiting (and this is a really positive and optimistic time estimation)… in the same time, when you have a repelling evacuation system, already 15 people would have been able to safely evacuate from each evacuation point!

Prevention and awareness are the primary survival mean in any situation… No matter who you are, how rich you are, your social rank, age, sex etc …

Quante volte avete sentito o letto di persone che, rimaste intrappolate in un edificio a causa di un incendio, hanno deciso di saltare giu’ dalla finestra?

Penso tutti ricorderete gli avvenimenti dell’11 Settembre 2001 (9/11), e ricorderete le agghiaccianti immagini di persone che saltavano nel vuoto!

Vivere o lavorare in un palazzo alto e’ sicuramente piacevole, dalle finestre si può’ godere di un ottima vista, il rumore del traffico e’ minore, l’aria più’ pulita… Ma quando dovesse giungere il momento di evacuare rapidamente può’ diventare una TRAPPOLA MORTALE…

Non serve un enorme incidente, basta un muro di fuoco e fumo che vi intrappola in una stanza.

I vigili del Fuoco hanno scale che possono arrivare fino al 5 piano, non oltre, e comunque impiegheranno sempre del tempo per arrivare sul posto.

Oggi, grazie alla conoscenza ed alla tecnologia, chiunque può’ essere preparato a tale evenienza ed avere un via alternativa di fuga.  Anche persone con disabilità motorie e bambini possono facilmente evacuare un edificio in tutta sicurezza.

Io vi propongo un sistema innovativo che vi permetterà di evacuare un edificio rapidamente, autonomamente, ed in piena sicurezza, usando una finestra o un balcone come “via di fuga”. EBE

We often refuse to understand that Fire can be dangerous even when is a small fire …

what about if you open your room or house door and fire and smoke are already there … in front of you … to this point it does not matter how big is the Fire, it does not matter if over that “fire wall” there are free stairs … what matter is that you are Trapped in that place!

In the accident described in the video and article (link on the bottom to this page) I am glad to say that all saved their life … but still two people went to the hospital (one of them is a small child). They escape from “the only evacuation way they had… “THE WINDOW” … in this case thanks to a “neighbouring roofs”.

Always consider the opportunity to have a secondary and safe way out! (EBE Emergency Building Evacuation plan)

You will probably (hopefully) never gat in such situation, but “never say never” … following some salient phrases from the interviewed people … Probably they also thought “it will never happen to me”

“In one minute I smelled smoke, opened my door and it was too late — had to head straight to the window,” he said. “I was fearing for my life, I had to get out of there. It was so intense, so quick, so fast.”


“Just a whole flame of fire, just fire and smoke. I couldn’t see nothing,” he said. “I jumped through the window around the back and waited until fire rescuers came and take me down from the other side of the building.”


Greene said he probably lost everything but he’s thankful he was able to get out.

“I’m alive, it’s okay. I’m alive, I’m glad to be alive,” he said.

Fire at apartment blocks kills 4, leaves 124 injured-INSIDE Korea JoongAng Daily

A police officer helps a resident retrieve her belongings Sunday in Uijeongbu, Gyeonggi. By Kim Sang-seon

We should all think about fire or other dramatic events that could seriously treat our lives… and we should not get scared about it, because today we have the proper knowledge and technology to help “helpers” and to rapidly and safely evacuate a building…

Every day we spend money in probably “not of primary needs” goods and services, but when it comes time to prevent a possible problem, therefore prepare ourselves and probably spend some money for proper training, equipments, and tools, we just say the most common and famous sentences… “it will never happen to me… my house is safe… fire?  there are firefighter for it … etc.”

here few sentences from the linked article (on the bottom of this page) that could stimulate your attention 😉

The female victims were 26-year-old Han Kyeong-jin, 29-year-old Yoon Hyo-jeong and 68-year-old Ahn Hyeon-sun. Lee Gwang-hyeok, 44, was the only male victim. 

VICTIMS ARE ALWAYS FROM ANY AGE AND SEX… when you are trapped, you are just trapped!


Four helicopters and 160 firefighters were sent to the scene, with the first fire truck arriving at 9:33 a.m. But authorities said they had a tough time getting to the location because the road leading to the buildings was too narrow for the fire truck to drive through. 

Thick smoke rises from the scene of a fire in Uijeongbu, Gyeonggi, 27 kilometers north of Seoul (17 miles) on Saturday morning, leaving four dead and 124 injured as of press time Sunday. [NEWSIS]

We never know how long Firefighters or other Rescue Unit will take to arrive… and in such situations, time run faster than ever!


During that time, the flames obstructed the main doorways on the first floors and smoke billowed up inside the buildings. Most of the trapped victims evacuated to the rooftops and waited for helicopters to rescue them. 

Others who lived on the lower floors jumped out of their windows or climbed down the outer walls before firefighters arrived at the scene. 

Opportunity to run out the window could be for everybody… you only need to know How and with What!  (EBE)

Be safe, choose to learn when you don’t need… because when you would need it would be too late!

Sei Intrappolato in un palazzo che va a fuoco, o dopo un terremoto o per ogni altro incidente… la tua migliore via di fuga e’ la finestra o il balcone… ma sei oltre i 6 Mt di altezza (20 Piedi) … come fai? aspetti i soccorsi? sicuro?
Dai uno sguardo a questo EBE
Sii sicuro, scegli di imparare quando non ti serve… perché’ quando ti potrebbe servire potrà’ essere troppo tardi!
