Fire and Smoke

Alert personnel in immediate vicinity and evacuate.

  • Unless a fire is small and easily extinguished, alert others, activate a fire alarm and evacuate the building.  Dial 9-1-1 from any phone to reach the fire department.  If possible, close doors on your way out to prevent spread of smoke or vapors into adjoining rooms and corridors.  Never enter a smoke-filled room.  Feel all doors for heat and do not open a door that is hot to the touch.  When heavy smoke is present, stay close to the floor.
  • If your or another person’s clothing is on fire, stop, drop to the floor or other horizontal surface and roll to put out the flames.  Seek immediate medical assistance.
