What to do in a Fire
Know What to Do in a Fire
- Test any closed doors with the back of your hand for heat. Do not open the door if you feel heat or see smoke. Close all doors as you leave each room to keep the fire from spreading.
- Crawl low under smoke. Choose the safest exit. If you must escape through a smoky area, remember that cleaner air is always near the floor. Teach your child to crawl on her hands and knees, keeping her head less than 2 feet above the floor, as she makes her way to the nearest exit.
- Don't stop. Don't go back. In case of fire, do not try to rescue pets or possessions. Once you are out, do not go back in for any reason. Firefighters have the best chance of rescuing people who are trapped. Let firefighters know right away if anyone is missing.
- Stop, drop, and roll! Cool and call. Make sure your child knows what to do if his clothes catch fire.
- Stop! - Do not run.
- Drop! - Drop to the ground right where you are.
- Roll! - Roll over and over to put out the flames. Cover your face with your hands.
- Cool - Cool the burned area with water.
- Call - Call for help.
