Fire Emergency

Familiarize yourself in advance with fire extinguisher locations, evacuation routes/exits, and fire alarm pull stations.

Smoke is the greatest danger in a fire. Always stay near the floor where the air is less toxic.  

  1. Activate the closest fire alarm pull station.
  2. Exit and stay low by getting down on your knees or belly if necessary.  Make your way out via the safest route and nearest exit.
  3. Assemble at the designated evacuation assembly point and await further instructions.

If trapped during a fire:

  1. Stay low near the floor.
  2. Shout at regular intervals to alert emergency personnel to your location.
  3. Indicate your location to emergency responders by placing an article of clothing outside a window.
