Basic Fire Safety Survival Tips:

  • Sleep with bedroom doors closed: closed doors provide protection against heat and smoke.
  • Teach everyone in your household to recognize the sound of your smoke alarm.
  • Test doors before opening them with the back of your hand. If it is hot, do not open.
  • If  located on the ground level, consider using a window as an alternative escape route.
  • Crawl low under smoke.
  • Exit the facility immediately and dial 911 once outside to alert authorities.
  • If your clothes catch fire: Stop, Drop, and Roll.
  • Cool a burn with cool running water.
