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.
