Sample Transcript

If at any point your clothing catches on fire, follow the stop, drop and roll procedure. Stop exactly where you are. Drop to the ground. Cover your face with your hands, and roll around to smother the flames. If someone else's clothes catch on fire, yell to them to stop, drop and roll. And then use a rug, blanket or towel to help smother and extinguish the flames.

Fire Safety FAQs

What is fire?
Heat and light energy produced and released during a chemical reaction.

What is the fire tetrahedron?
The four elements necessary to form a fire—heat, fuel, oxygen, and an unrestricted chemical chain reaction.

What is the best way to prevent a fire?
Keeping the three elements of the fire triangle separate—most specifically, keeping heat away from fuel.

What are some effective methods of fire protection
Automatic fire sprinklers, smoke detectors, pull alarms, and evacuation.

How should one use a fire extinguisher?
Use the PASS technique—pull the pin, aim the nozzle at the base of the fire, squeeze the handle, and sweep from side to side at the base of the fire.

When should one use a fire extinguisher (and when should one evacuate instead)?
Only if you’re properly trained, if you’re not endangering yourself or others, if you have a clear evacuation path behind you, and if the fire is small, contained, and hasn’t spread to other materials.
