A Duty for Every Parent – Fire Safety

There is no way around it. First of all, fire safety is a crucial element for people of every age to understand and fear. However, there is a particular vulnerability for children due to fire. Blazes kill hundreds of Americans each year, with higher proportions for children.

These fires can strike anywhere– including in the home, at school or work, or on the open road. Each is their challenge that should come with the right warnings and discussions.

Ehline Law writes this column as a means to keep our children safe from the risks of fire. We use our dozens of years of legal and practical experience for parents everywhere.

Be Cool About Fire Safety

As Rich Evans said, “Be cool about fire safety.” There is little room for error when dealing with potential flame hazards. There are, however, several things that you can do to teach your children the basics of preventing fires and reacting to them.

  • Teach children the basics of the causes of fires. Keep them away from matches and lighters. They should understand the potential risk that each present. Furthermore, they should follow which materials are flammable and a potential hazard.
  • Stop, drop, and roll. This technique is constant since your days in school. It’s the same as it was at the time.

What to do in case of a fire:

  • Most important, teach your children many of the basics, including to touch doors to see if they are hot, potential evacuation routes, and to stay close to the ground. Many fire deaths are not due to the fire itself, but rather suffocation.
  • Also, keep smoke alarms where they are needed. Don’t skimp on the number of smoke alarms around the house, especially around kids’ rooms.
  • Keep accessible fire extinguishers. Keep them in logical places. And teach kids how to use them if ever needed. Hopefully, that day will never come.

Skyslide Attraction More Dangerous than Previously Believed

While the new Skyslide is a major tourist attraction, there is a hidden risk for visitors. Many seek out the “Skyslide.” And at least one woman has been severely injured while riding it. So some L.A. personal injury attorneys may have found a new cottage industry here. A new lawsuit shows the risk presented to the public and the insufficient safety checks done to prevent harm from coming to visitors.

Even though it’s just open a month at the US Bank Tower, the slide already claimed a victim. Gayle Yashar, 57, of New York claimed that she broke her ankle while using the slide. She and her husband filed a complaint in Los Angeles Superior Court, the company that owns the US Bank Towner, Oue, and Legends Hospitality, the operator of the slide.

The lawsuit says that the slide accelerates so fast that visitors cannot properly slow down in time to prevent injury. Yashar and her attorney even posted the video of her trip down the Skyslide on Youtube.

Options for Injured Skyslide Users

In case you or a family member injure yourselves using the Skyslide, there are options open for you. Ehline Law successfully represented hundreds of clients injured due to unsafe conditions at entertainment venues, including amusement parks and others. We understand the risks that many companies overlook to open their locations, often at the expense of visitors.

Ehline Law has experience fighting for tighter safety requirements at these sites to prevent future injury for others. We also seek compensation for the victim’s families, including medical expenses, loss of work, and more.

Hence, our team has the experience needed to go toe to toe with even the largest companies and demand to make the injured party whole again. We will travel anywhere in California to discuss your case with you. Furthermore, we offer a variety of services determining your legal options.
