This incident once again highlights the critical importance of safety, no matter where you are. Learning to recognize different types of signage can be life-saving, especially in crowded and emergency situations. Various signs in shopping malls play an irreplaceable role in this situation.

These actions can help you stay away from danger. Life is priceless, be sure to protect yourself.
