Fire Safety Tips

WHAT TO DO IN CASE OF FIRE

  • In case of fire: DO NOT HIDE, GO OUTSIDE! Fires are scary, but you should NEVER hide in closets or under beds when there is a fire.
  • To escape during a fire: FALL AND CRAWL. It is easier to breath in a fire if you stay low while getting out. Use the back of your hand to test if a door is hot before you open it. If it is hot, try to use another way out.
  • If your clothes are on fire: STOP, DROP and ROLL until the fire is out. Shout for help, but don't run. Running makes fire burn faster.
  • HAVE AN ESCAPE PLAN and practice it with your family. Find two ways out of every room in case one way is blocked by fire or smoke. Practice escaping by both routes to be sure windows are not stuck and screens can be taken out quickly.
  • Choose a meeting place outside, such as a big tree or the end of the driveway, so you will know that everyone has gotten out safely. NEVER go back into a burning building for any reason. If someone is missing, tell the firefighters. They have the clothing and equipment to safely rescue people.
  • Know your local emergency numbers. Place it in refrigerator and other places you frequent in the house. If there is a fire at your house, choose one family member to leave your meeting place and call the fire department from a neighbors phone.

  • BE SAFE ALWAYS!
