Fire

Note: If you become trapped in a building during a fire and a window is available, place an article of clothing (shirt, coat, etc.) outside the window, as a marker for rescue crews. If there is no window, stay near the floor where the air will be less toxic. Shout at regular intervals to alert emergency crews of your location.

Do not jump. Response time by the Saratoga Springs Fire Department is excellent. If necessary, stay near the floor where the air will be less toxic, wet towels and place them under doorways.
