If your home is getting hot and it starts to melt down, or the water in the pipes is starting to leak, the best thing you can do is turn off your water supply.
It’s called firefighting, and in a recent study, scientists found that people who shut off their water supply before the heat starts are more likely to save themselves from a fire.
A study published last year in the journal Preventive Medicine found that switching off water can help people save their lives from heat stroke and pneumonia.
This means that shutting off the water will save lives from a severe heat wave, such as a blizzard, but it can also save lives if you’re a person who’s living in an area where water is scarce.
You can also turn off the sprinkler system in your home to protect yourself from the risk of a fire happening.
This is called fire fighting agent, and while this can save lives, it’s still not enough to prevent fires.
You may have to use firefighting agent to protect your home from heat-related damage.
You’ll want to use it sparingly, but make sure you use it to protect the people you’re trying to protect.
