What do I do?

If caught

  • Drop to your knees and crawl.
  • Breathe shallowly through your nose, holding your breath as long as possible. Use a damp cloth over your mouth and nose to filter out smoke.
  • Stay calm.

If your clothing catches on fire

  • Stop where you are.
  • Drop to the floor.
  • Roll around on the floor.

If someone else’s clothing catches on fire

  • Grab a blanket, rug or coat and wrap them in it to smother the flames.
