EMERGENCY GUIDE/HANDICAP EVACUATION PLAN
If a person with a disability cannot get out of a building (elevators might be down) the best thing for them to do is to go to the nearest accessible stairwell and let someone know of their location so they can notify the proper authorities.
FIREFIGHTER FLO asks that if you smoke, do not smoke in bed or near flammable materials. Use large ashtrays and be sure ashes, matches, and cigarette ends are cold before disposal.
