Safe Evacuation Tips

  • Feel all doors before opening:
    • If they are hot or smoke is seeping in, do not open.
    • If door feels cool, open cautiously.
    • If hall is clear, proceed with evacuation plan.
    • Close all doors behind you, especially the door to a burning room.
    • Proceed directly to the nearest stairway.
  • DO NOT use elevators.
  • Alert others.
  • If there is smoke present stay low.
  • Walk DOWN the stairwell - do not run – go up ONLY when downward movement is not safe.
