Go to the nearest exit! Never go up to the roof. Never lock doors as you are leaving a burning room or building. Doing so can hinder the efforts of rescue crews.
If you have to open any doors that you can not see through, feel the door. If the door is hot, there is flame on the other side, DO NOT OPEN. Use a different exit.
NEVER use an elevator! You could become trapped as the elevator looses power.
Stay low. Smoke rises, and you will find the cleanest air near the floor. Cover your mouth with a damp cloth to breathe through.
Once outside, stay clear of the building and call 9-1-1 Emergency Services.

If there are no safe exits, seal the doorframe off with masking tape or wet cloths to prevent smoke from filling your non-burning room.
Call 9-1-1 Emergency Services and give them your exact location. If there is not a phone available, wave at the window to attract attention.
If you do not have a Savage Expedition Gear paracord belt, wait patiently for the fire department to come and rescue you.
