Explain emergency procedures to be followed in the event of a fire in the work setting
Departments that need a special fire emergency procedure to meet your operations should contact the Fire Safety Section for assistance.
Most departments can follow the basic building evacuation procedure outlined below. [ The building evacuation procedure for your department should be posted on the office bulletin board.
In the event of an alarm "RACE":

How to Survive a Building Fire
Crawl If There's Smoke
Feel Doors Before Opening
Go To The Nearest Exit
Always Use An Exit Stair, Not An Elevator
Use a fire extinguisher if the fire is very small and you know how to use it safely
If you are on fire - Stop, Drop and Roll
If You Get Trapped
Close the door
Open the windows if safe
Signal for help and phone 911
Don't jump; the fire department will reach you
If You are Physically Impaired
If you are disabled (even temporarily), you should do the following:
Learn about fire safety
Plan ahead for fire emergencies
Be aware of your own capabilities and limitations
Look for "areas of refuge" like stair enclosures or other side of corridor fire doors. Elevators are not safe during fires. Sometimes it may be safer to stay in your room. Follow the advice for being trapped.
If there is an immediate threat to safety, ask others near you for assistance. If no help is available, seek refuge in a room with a window or stairway. If possible, call "911" to report your location and receive instructions from the Emergency Operator.
