Is there anything else I need to know?

View tips that everyone should know in the event of a fire:

  • Do the drill - Conduct your own fire drill or participate in regular fire drills to make sure you know what to do in the event of a home fire. If you or someone you live with cannot escape alone, designate a member of the household to assist and decide on a back up in case the designated helper isn't home.
  • Fire drills are also a good opportunity to make sure that everyone is able to hear and respond to smoke alarms.
  • Stay connected - Keep the telephone nearby, along with emergency phone numbers so that you can communicate with emergency personnel if you're trapped in your room by fire or smoke.
  • Stop Drop and Roll - If your clothes catch on fire, stop where you are, drop to the floor, cover your face with your hands and roll over and over until the flames go out. Avoid wearing loose fitting clothing while cooking.
