  • Exit the building ASAP
  • Crawl low if there is smoke
  • Use a wet cloth, if possible, to cover your nose and mouth.
  • Use the back of your hand to feel the upper, lower, and middle parts of closed doors.
  • If the door is not hot, brace yourself against it and open slowly.
  • If the door is hot, do not open it and look for an alternate way out.
  • Do not use elevators.
  • If you should catch fire, do not run. Stop-drop-and-roll to put out the fire.
  • If you are at home, go to a previously designated meeting place.
  • Account for your family members and carefully supervise small children.
  • Never go back into a burning building.


If you are trapped by debris:

  • If possible, use a flashlight to signal your location to rescuers.
  • Avoid unnecessary movements so that you dont kick up dust.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with anything you have on hand. Any dense-weave cotton material can act as a good filter to breathe through.
  • Tap on a pipe or wall so that rescuers can hear where you are.
  • If possible, use a whistle to signal rescuers.
  • Shout only as a last resort, as shouting can cause you to inhale dangerous amounts of dust.
