What to do in a fire…..

House Fires

  • Call 911
  • If you suspect a fire, make sure everyone is out and safe, including pets.
  • Once out of the residence, stay out.
  • If you become trapped in a room, these steps are recommended:
  1. Keep door closed. Opening the door will decrease your chance of survival.
  2. Stay low to the floor. Smoke rises and fresher air remains lower to the ground.
  3. Wait by the window and identify your distress.
  4. Don’t hide under beds or in closets.
  5. Seal the bottom of the door with blankets or clothing to keep smoke out.

Apartment Fires

  • Residents may face two situations. The first is a fire in the apartment you live in. Second is a fire in someone else’s apartment. In either case, it is best to have a plan and know precisely how to respond.
  • If there is a fire in your apartment, it is important to slow the fire spread by closing the doors behind you, so other people will have time to evacuate the building.
  • Call 911 immediately, and then alert others in the building of the fire.
  • Activate the fire alarm if there is one.
  • Identify two exits out of your apartment, and make them known to other family members.

Multi-Story Building Fires

  • Do not use elevator.
  • Find evacuation signs in the stairwell landing that will give you information.
  • Fire doors in the halls should never be blocked for any reason.
