    The Hidden Dangers of Breathing in Smoke and Fumes from a Fire

    Smoke has hidden dangers to anyone who breathes it. Smoke is smoke, there is no “safe” amount of particulate that is considered safe or healthy for anyone to breathe in. If you are exposed to smoke and fire, there is a chance that you can be asphyxiated from breathing in the gas and particulate that is present in the smoke associated with a fire. This is a threat to the safety of everyone near smoke. Smoke is not made up of just the vapors of one type of smoke. Rather, smoke is made up of a lethally toxic potion of:

    Particulate Matter Is a Silent Killer

    Fine particulate matter (PM2.5) is an air pollutant that is hazardous to everyone’s health. When the air level carries PM2.5, it means that there is smoke in the air and reduced quality of air to breath. The particulate matter of 2.5 is a designation referring to the tiny particles and droplets that are two- and one-half microns or less wide.

    The micron is a unit of measure for distance, and there are 25,000 microns in an inch. The width of a particle that is larger than PM2.5 means that it is thirty times smaller than a width of human hair. Now this is really small, but these particles easily get into your lungs. That means that several thousand small particles are small enough to hide in the period at the end of this sentence.

    What Is the Big Deal with Particulate Matter?

    Particulate matter is deadly, and is not broken down by the body at all. Although these particles are super small, they can very easily get into your respiratory tract, and travel up to your lungs. This will cause you to:

    • Cough
    • Sneeze
    • Runny nose
    • Shortness of breath
    • Eye watering
    • Nose stopped up
    • Lung irritation
    • Sore throat
    • Trigger asthma
    • Trigger heart disease
    • Trigger cardiovascular events

    The PM2.5 is able to get into your lungs and the lungs cannot clear it, making it stick to the lungs. This will or could eventually grow into a cancer over time in the lungs, or anywhere else in the body.

    Smoke and Fire Alarms Help Save Lives, But Only When They Are Working!

    Smoke and fire alarms are meant to save lives when used in homes to alert the occupants of a smoke event or an actual fire. The alarms will beep and buzz to sound the noise loud enough to wake up the family to get them out of the house and to a safe location, in the event of an actual fire or smoke event. The fire alarms need to be in full operational mode, in order to verify that they will work when sensing fire or smoke in a residence or office. If the smoke or fire alarm does not work, it will not alert people in a dwelling or business that there is an active fire event. In that case, the family or office workers will be in a fire and can succumb to the effects of smoke or flame in a fire event.

    The point of having a smoke and fire alarm in a home or office are to provide an early alarm system to protect the occupants for potentially fatal fires and smoke events. If you are in an actual fire, then you know that seconds on the clock count, and that you need that time to get out of the building or residence if there were an actual fire. Smoke alarms have special sensors on them, as do fire alarms. These alarms are in place with photoelectric sensing alarm systems to determine and detect visible fire particles and particulate matter, that is carcinogenic to humans. If a defect in the smoke or fire alarm causes the alarm not to sound, it can be fatal for the occupants in the building or residence.
