Simplified Chinese

最近发生在安阳的天然气爆炸导致两死一伤。

一对夫妇傍晚时分回家,一进家门就闻到煤气味。男主人马上赶到厨房,发现气味更浓。潜意识令他打开灯,厨房马上爆炸。

丈夫当场死亡,妻子被送到重症监护室,全身90%烧伤。他们的家具飞到距离厨房200米远的地方。这意味着燃气管爆炸,甚至比炸弹还要强。

遇到天然气泄漏,千万要小心注意。当你闻到煤气味时(淡淡的臭鸡蛋味),千万不要开灯。马上轻手轻脚地打开所有的门窗。这样就不会产生火花。然后,再关闭煤气管道开关。切记不要开灯。等到煤气味完全消失再开灯。

如果你闻到了煤气味,也不要打开冰箱。因为它也会引起爆炸。甚至厨房抽烟机及吹风机也不要打开,因为它们带电。只需要打开窗户即可。

消防员呼吁,一定要提高消防安全意识,正确使用燃气设备。

English Translation

The recent gas explosion in Anyang caused two deaths and one injury.

A married couple came home in the evening and smelled gas as soon as they entered the house. The husband immediately rushed to the kitchen where he found the smell to be stronger. Subconsciously, he turned on the lights, and the kitchen immediately exploded.

The husband died on the spot and his wife was sent to the ICU, with 90% of the body burned. Their furniture flew 200 meters from the kitchen. This means that a gas pipe explosion is even stronger than a bomb.

You really need to be very careful when encountering a gas leak. When you smell the gas (light rotten eggs smell), DO NOT turn on the lights. Immediately open all the doors and windows softly.  If you do it like this, sparks will not be produced. Then, close the gas pipe switch. Remember not to turn on the lights. Wait until the gas smell has completely disappeared before you turn on the light.

If you smell a gas odor, don’t open the refrigerator, because this can also cause an explosion. Kitchen exhaust hood and hair dryers should also not be turned on because they carry electricity. Just open the window and that will suffice.

Firefighters have appealed, that we must increase our awareness to fire prevention and control, and use gas equipment correctly.

Indonesia Translation

Ledakan tabung gas baru-baru ini di Anyang menyebabkan dua kematian dan satu cedera.

Sepasang suami istri pulang ke rumah di sore hari dan mencium bau gas begitu mereka memasuki rumah. Suaminya segera bergegas ke dapur dan dia menemukan bau tersebut menjadi lebih kuat. Tanpa sadar dia menyalakan lampu, dan dapur pun meledak seketika.

Sang suami meninggal di tempat dan istrinya dikirim ke ICU, dengan 90% tubuhnya dibakar. Mebel mereka terbang 200 meter dari dapur. Ini berarti bahwa ledakan pipa gas bahkan lebih kuat daripada bom.

Anda benar-benar harus sangat berhati-hati ketika menemukan kebocoran gas. Saat Anda mencium bau gas (telur busuk berbau), JANGAN nyalakan lampu. Segera buka semua pintu dan jendela dengan lembut. Jika Anda melakukannya seperti ini, bunga api tidak akan dihasilkan. Kemudian, tutup sakelar pipa gas. Ingatlah untuk tidak menyalakan lampu. Tunggu sampai bau gas benar-benar hilang sebelum Anda menyalakan lampu.

Jika Anda mencium bau gas, jangan membuka kulkas, karena ini juga dapat menyebabkan ledakan. Kap knalpot dapur dan pengering rambut juga tidak boleh dihidupkan karena membawa listrik. Cukup buka jendela dan itu sudah cukup.

Pemadam kebakaran telah mengajukan banding, bahwa kita harus meningkatkan kesadaran kita untuk pencegahan dan pengendalian kebakaran, dan menggunakan peralatan gas dengan benar.
