Do these things to safely escape a fire

  • Get down, get low, get out - smoke is poisonous, get underneath it on your hands and knees, and crawl to the nearest safe exit.
  • Shut the doors behind you to stop the spread of fire.
  • Shout Fire! Fire! Fire! to warn others.
  • Ensure everyone is out of the building.
  • Get out and stay out - never go back inside.
  • Go to your safe meeting place - such as your letterbox.
  • Call triple zero ‘000’ from a mobile or a neighbour’s phone.
  • Wait for the Fire Service to arrive.
