- Don’t rush out into the hallway. Feel the door. If it is hot, use another way out. If the door is cool, leave by the nearest exit.
- If your building has a public announcement system, listen carefully and follow directions.
- Never use elevators in a fire. Use the stairs. Close all doors behind you to slow fire spread.
- Get out and stay out. Go directly to your planned meeting place and stay there. If you think someone is trapped inside, notify the fire department.
- If you can’t escape from your apartment:
- stuff wet towels, sheets or clothes around the door and vents to keep smoke out
- Call the fire department and tell them where you are
- If no smoke is coming into the room you’re in, open a window slightly both at the top and at the bottom
- Stay low and wave a bright cloth, towel or sheet out the window to signal your location
