1.A certain number of fire-fighting equipment must be stored in the laboratory. The fire-fighting equipment must be placed in an obvious location that is easy to access. It must be managed by a designated person. All personnel must take good care of the fire-fighting equipment and regularly check and replace them as required.

2. All flammable and explosive materials (such as hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, etc.) stored in the laboratory must be kept at a certain distance from the fire source and power source, and should not be stacked randomly. In laboratories where flammable and explosive materials are used and stored, fireworks are strictly prohibited.
