School are very large buildings and there are alot of little boys and girls there every day. So, what if there is a fire? Do you know the rules? Do you know what to do?

If you are caught in a smokey area, the cleanest and coolest air to breath is down close to the floor. It’s a good idea to practice this beforehand
KNOW A SECOND PLAN !!
Have a backup, in case you can’t follow the first exit route or if you get separated from your class. Go to your assigned meeting place outside of the building so that the teacher or firefighters won’t have to look for you
KNOW NOT TO GO BACK INSIDE !!
NEVER re-enter the building for any reason. Not until your teacher says it is safe to go back
KNOW HOW TO TEST FOR SAFETY !!
If you are unsure about opening a door… Feel it with the back of your hand. If it’s hot, that is a sign of danger on the other side. Use a different exit
KNOW ALL THE EXITS !!
