People who live in an apartment or condominium need to know how to get out quickly if a fire starts. Share these messages with your community about how to prepare for fire and how to escape if a fire starts.

Building fire safety

Be prepared

Create an escape plan. Discuss how you will get outside. Practice your plan.

In the event of a fire, stay calm.

Move to the exit as you have practiced. Call the fire department once you are outside.

Wait outside for the fire department

Once you are outside, move away from the building. Give firefighters and fire trucks plenty of space.
