Perceptions, however apparently sound, are not the reality. There are those who do not take basic safety measures because they believe that spending money on things that they do not actually need is a waste. They are wrong on two counts.
First of all, the safety and exigency tools that are required for enclosed spaces are mandated by the national building codes and in most cases, civic rules also of the concerned, city, town, taluka etc. This means, if it is found that one is not compliant, one need not have to wait for a disaster to happen to lose much, much, more than they think they may have saved. And secondly, a fire accident or mishap is happening every minute, probably even this minute, somewhere in the world to someone or the other. They may not make headline news but they can happen anytime to anyone and to think accidents only happen to others, is living in a fool’s paradise.
