If your alarm sounds, exit your home as quickly as possible. Once you’re out, stay out and call 911 immediately. If you or a family member can’t escape, close the door of the room you’re in and wait for firefighters to preform the rescue.
A portable fire extinguisher can save lives and property by putting out a small fire or containing it until the fire department arrives. Contact your local fire station for more information and training on how to properly use a fire extinguisher.
