Fire Escape Tips for Apartment Living in Beckley?
Escape Tips 101
This is a “before picture” of an apartment that was damaged by fire, soot, and smoke. We were called in when the apartment manager realized the cleaning and restoration job was too difficult. We arrived quickly, and in no time the apartment was restored to preloss condition. SERVPRO® of Beckley has been helping Beckley businesses and residents restore fire-damaged buildings and homes for years.
Here are some fire escape tips from the National Fire Protection Association for people living in apartments:
- GO to your outside meeting place and stay there. Call the fire department. If someone is trapped in the building, notify the fire department.
- If you can’t get out of your apartment because of fire, smoke, or a disability:
- STUFF wet towels or sheets around the door and vents to keep smoke out. CALL the fire department and tell them where you are.
- OPEN a window slightly and wave a bright cloth to signal your location. Be prepared to close the window if it makes the smoke condition worse.
Fire department evacuation of a high-rise building can take a long time. Communicate with the fire department to monitor evacuation status.
