Get out, Stay out
- Don't touch matches. Stay away from
lighters and candles, too.
- Don't touch radiators or heaters. Ask a
grown-up to turn a heater on or off for you. Don't stand too close to a
fireplace or wood stove, either.
- Don't play with electrical cords. And don't
stick anything into an electrical socket.
- Don't play around in the kitchen. If you
want to cook something, be sure to check with a grown-up first.
- Don't put anything over a lamp. Things
thrown over a lamp (like blankets or clothing) could catch fire.
- Make an escape plan. Work with your family
to plan how to get out of your home if there is a fire.
- Plan two ways out of every room. The first
way out should be a door.
- Choose a meeting place. Pick a safe and
easy-to-remember spot outside your home where you will meet your family
after you get out.
- Practice! Every escape path needs to be
planned and practiced with grown-ups.
- Test smoke alarms. Help grown-ups remember
to test smoke alarms monthly and to put in new batteries twice a year
when the clocks change.
If there is a fire:
- Get out fast! When you hear the loud beep
of the smoke alarm, get out of the house. Never hide or take time to
grab your belongings or pets.
- Follow your escape plan. After all, you've
- Feel a door before you open it. If it is
hot, there may be fire on the other side. Try to get out another way.
- Stay low to the floor. Since smoke rises,
the safest air for breathing is down low.
- Call 9-1-1 or the fire department. Be sure
to do this after you get out of the house. Remember: Only call 9-1-1 if
there is a real emergency.
- Stay out! Once you're out, stay out. Don't
go back for anything!
Stop, Drop, and Roll. If your clothing catches fire, remember to stop
where you are and drop to the ground. Cover your face and mouth with your
hands, and roll over and over until the flames are out.
