How Do I ?

Fire Protection

Plan for a safe refuge in case you cannot escape
from the house.Take the following precautions:

  • Make sure there is a phone or personal alert in the room to call for help.
  • Try to have a room with a window so you can either escape or call out for help (stay by the window).
  • Close the door and seal the bottom with towels or blankets to stop harmful smoke entering.
