  FIRE FIRE ALARM
In case of a Fire or upon discovery of a Fire:

  • If you are trained to do so, try to put out a small fire using a suitable fire extinguisher.
  • Leave the area immediately and close doors (unlocked) and windows behind you.
  • Call 911, Toronto Fire Services from a safe location.
  • Activate the nearest fire alarm station to alert other occupants.
  • Evacuate the building via the nearest stairs and exit.  See EVACUATION

If you encounter smoke, stay low and crawl if necessary.  Smoke rises, so there is less smoke at floor level.  Place clothing over your nose and face.  Take short breaths through your nose to reduce the amount of smoke you inhale.  If there is smoke in your stairwell, take another stairwell.
