Always “know two (2) ways out” from wherever you are; do not use the elevators.
Prepare before a fire:
ALWAYS familiarize yourself with where you are and be sure to know how to reach the TWO nearest EXITS.
Remember that in a fire situation, smoke is blinding and will bank down in rooms and hallways. This condition may force you to crouch or crawl to escape to safety. ALWAYS being aware of your surroundings, knowing the locations of the nearest EXITS, and having a PLAN will greatly increase your ability to deal with sudden emergencies.
If you are notified of, or discover a fire:
Move quickly to the nearest accessible exit.
Notify, and assist others to evacuate along the way.
If the building fire alarm is not yet sounding, manually activate the alarm pull station located near the exit.
