Fire Drills – Regular fire drills should be performed at the workplace and there should be an evacuation procedure in place. Evacuation routes should be clearly posted.
If a Fire Breaks Out – Sound the alarm to alert other employees.
Call 911 – Give them the information they need and don’t hang up until the emergency responder tells you to.
If the Fire is Small – You may attempt to extinguish it with a fire extinguisher. However, if the fire cannot be controlled by a fire extinguisher, evacuate immediately.
Close Doors Behind You – When exiting the building close doors to help prevent the fire from spreading.
Never use an Elevator – Depending on the magnitude of the fire, elevators may shut down mid-transit due to electrical damage.
Learn Basic First Aid Skills – After the evacuation, help any employees who may have been injured either by the flames or smoke inhalation.
Once Out, Stay Out – Never go back inside a smoke-filled or burning building.
