What To Do If a Home Fire Starts?
In the event of a fire in your home, here are a few safety tips to remember:
Get out, stay out and call 9-1-1 - Yell "Fire!" multiple times and then get out immediately. If you must escape through smoke, get low and go under the smoke to your exit. Close doors behind you. If you live in a building with elevators, use the stairs. Leave all your things where they are and save yourself.
Do not open doors that are warm to the touch. - If closed doors or handles are warm or smoke blocks your primary escape route, use your second way out.
