Plan A Safe Escape
  • Fire can be a very scary thing, don’t hide from it.
  • Stay as calm as you can and get out fast.
  • Crawl on the floor below the smoke
  • Check the doorknob to see if it’s cool before opening the door.
  • Open the door slowly.
  • Do Not try to hide in places that may seem safe. Get to your families “safe meeting place” as soon as you can.
  • If the doorknob is hot, it means there is fire on the other side.
  • Do not open the door.
  • Stuff blankets or sheets under the door.
  • If you can’t escape safely from your window, wave a cloth out the window and yell as loud as you can.
  • Talk to your mom or dad about setting up a “Escape Plan” for the whole family.
