Fire Safety

Fire can hurt you. Do you know what to do if there's a fire at your house? Follow these tips for safety:
  • Plan and practice fire drills at home with your family.
  • Know how to escape and where to meet your family outside after a fire.
  • If there is a fire, escape outside as quickly as possible – do not hide in your room or in a closet.
  • Leave your toys behind.
  • Close the door behind you as you leave a room.
  • Crawl along the floor to stay under any smoke.
  • If fire prevents your escape, close the door and put blankets at the bottom to keep the smoke out. Carefully open the window and yell for help. DO NOT lean out of the window, but you can wave something to help people see you.
  • Know how to “Stop, Drop and Roll” if your clothes catch on fire.
