Fire Protection Information
In Case of Fire
Get out and stay out. NEVER GO BACK INTO A BURNING BUILDING!
Crawl near the floor to the nearest exit maintaining contact with the wall.
DO NOT OPEN A DOOR IF IT IS HOT TO THE TOUCH! Use second way out to safety.
If the door and knob are cool, open the door slowly. Be prepared to close it if smoke and heat rush in.
Should you get trapped, put as many closed doors as possible between you and the fire; seal all cracks in doors and windows with towels or bedding.
If clothing catches on fire, STOP where you are: DROP gently to the ground and cover your face with your hands and ROLL back and forth to put out the flames.
Cool burns in cool running water (under the tap) for 10 to 15 minutes.
