What should you do if your clothes catch on fire?


  1. Stop: Stop where you are. Don’t run!
  2. Drop: Drop to the ground.
  3. Roll: Cover your face with hands & roll over and over to smother the flames.

What should you do if there is smoke in your house and it’s hard to breathe?

  • Crawl low under smoke where the air is fresher and cooler.
  • Get out fast. Do not stop to rescue pets or personal possessions.
  • Feel the door with the back of your hand. If the door is hot, use another escape route.
  • Go directly to your meeting place outside.
  • Call 9-1-1 from a neighbor’s home.
  • Stay out! Never go back inside for any reason.

Memorize your phone number and street address.
