KUWAIT CITY, June 11: Director of the Public Relations and Media Department at Kuwait Fire Force (KFF) Brigadier General Mohammad Al-Gharib has warned against leaving mobile phones, portable chargers (power banks) and highly flammable materials like perfumes and others in vehicles in light of the extremely high temperature during summer in order to prevent fire. In a statement to the daily, Al-Gharib also clarified there is no truth to the allegation that completely filling up a vehicle’s fuel tank during summer could lead to fire or explosion due to the high temperature. He said “this is not dangerous, because vehicles have a safety system that protects them even if the fuel tank is full.

Car engines and fuel operating systems are specially designed to adapt to the hot climate.” He stressed the necessity of installing smoke and gas detectors in homes, performing regular maintenance on vehicles and ensuring their safety so that they are not exposed to fire; in addition to the importance of having a fire extinguisher in vehicles, homes and boats to immediately deal with fire emergencies and to extinguish the fire before the situation worsens.

He advised citizens and expatriates that if they go to beaches, waterfronts, chalets, farms or rest houses; they have to pay attention to children and not leave them alone to prevent drowning — Allah forbid — as it happened in previous years. He said those wishing to go on sea excursions must adhere to safe sailing procedures; such as wearing a life jacket, informing the Operations Unit by calling hotline number 112 about their location and the number of people, and ensuring that the weather condition is stable. He confirmed that all fire stations in the governorates are always ready to deal with fire reports quickly; wishing at the same time, for the safety of everyone.
