Keep your family safe by teaching them the basic steps to remember when caught on fire: STOP, DROP and Roll.
Fire incidents often occur in the most unexpected times, putting both lives and property at risk.
Learning how to extinguish fire on a person’s clothes or hair without firefighting equipment is an important component of fire safety.
Basic steps to remember when caught on fire:
STOP – Do not run and do not panic.
DROP – Drop to the ground and lie down flat with legs out straight. Cover eyes and mouth with hands to avoid facial injury.
ROLL – Roll around until the flames are out. A rug may also be used to smother the fire by rolling it around the body.
