Fire Safety Tips
If you hear an alarm give it your immediate attention. Do NOT assume it is a false alarm. Shout FIRE to warn others in the house. Test doors with the back of your hand before opening to see if a fire on other side. If the door handle is hot then do not open it. Close the door and put a blanket at the bottom to reduce fumes coming underneath. Stay or crawl low to avoid toxic fumes if necessary. Grab a phone if there is one immediately available (otherwise forget it) and try and escape from another exit (e.g. a window) if possible. Dial the emergency services as soon as possible once out.
Do not play with matches or lighters
Keep away from open fires or gas fires, especially if you are wearing loose clothing. If your clothing does catch fire roll around to smother it.
