If your clothes catch fire, stop - don't run. Drop gently to the ground, cover your face with your hands, and roll over and over or back and forth to smother the flames.
Cool the burn with cool water for 10 to 15 minutes, then call for help!
Crawl Low in Smoke:
Smoke rises and the clean air in a building is low. If you are trapped in a smoke-filled room, fall, crawl, stay low, and . . . go, go, go!
Get Out, Stay Out:
During a fire, once you are out of the house, stay out! Do not return inside for any reason.
Kids & Matches and Lighters:
Kids, if you see matches or a lighter don't touch them, and go tell an adult right away.
