HOW TO SURVIVE IN CASE OF A FIRE
**Evacuate your own unit immediately. Move everyone to a safe staging area**
Call 911 and contact the Front Desk.
Memorize and follow these procedures to protect yourself and safely evacuate your unit in case of a fire:
1. As soon as you enter your villa, familiarize yourself with all the exits.
2. Make sure you know where the fire extinguisher is located.
3. Report any fire safety deficiencies that you spot to Management.
4. If a fire breaks out in the Villa, follow these tips:
(a) To learn if it is safe to leave a room, go to the door and use your hand to check the temperature of the door. If it is hot, do not open it. Instead, assume that you are trapped in the room.
(b) If the door is cool, open it a crack, but be ready to close it immediately if there is hot air, smoke or flames outside of the door. If there are none of these but the hall is hazy, crawl down the hall keeping your nose and mouth covered with whatever you have available.
(c) If you are trapped in an upstairs room stuff a sheet or bedspread around the door to keep as much smoke out as possible.
(d) Close as many doors as possible between you and the fire but be sure to stay in a room with windows. If the fire is on the floor below or there are clouds of smoke outside, leave the windows closed. Only if it is safe to do so, open a window and hang a bedspread or sheet as a signal that someone is trapped inside.
(e) Do not jump, unless there is absolutely no other alternative. Firefighters will tell you what to do. Wait for their help.
