If you become trapped due to smoke, heat, flames, or some other hazard:
- Leave the room door closed. Seal door cracks and ventilation grills with cloth or wet towels or clothing, if possible.
- Use the telephone to call 911 and let them know your location. Hang an article of clothing, large enough for emergency responders to see, in or out the window if possible.
- If smoke enters the room and there is an window that opens, open the window to let it out. Close the window if outside smoke enters. Tie a piece of clothing around your nose and mouth to filter out smoke if needed.
- Stay close to the floor where the air is cleaner.
