Fire Emergency Safety Guide
for Families with Special Needs
This brochure offers some tips to practice at home:
Crawl to the door on your hands and knees when the smoke alarm goes off.
Feel the door with the back of your hand. If it’s hot, do not open it. Put something under the door to keep smoke out.
Know two means of escape from every room. What is your second way out?
Yell “Fire!” out the window to call for help.
Meet at a designated safe place away from the home.
Call 911 once you are safe outside.
Stay out once you get out.
