If You Have a Fire

  • Get Out of the house or building and STAY OUT!
  • Crawl low under the smoke.
  • Feel doors with the back of your hand for heat, before opening.
  • Open doors slowly and be ready to close them if fire is outside them.
  • Once out of the house or building, DON'T GO BACK INSIDE FOR ANY REASON!
  • Once outside go to a phone and call 911.
  • If your clothes catch on fire: STOP, DROP, and ROLL until the fire goes out, cover your face with your hands.
  • Provide any helpful information to the Fire Department you can:
    • Where the fire is located, if anyone is still inside the building.
    • Any hazards that might be in the house or building.
