Fire Safety
Like all buildings, hotel and motels CAN have fires. Plan what to do when you check in. You won’t have time to plan during a fire.

  • First, find two exits nearest your room. Be sure they are unlocked and unblocked. Then count doors between your room and exits so you’ll have a reference point if it’s smoky.
  • When you hear an alarm, ACT, don’t investigate.
  • If the fire is in your room get out and close the door. Once out, report the fire.
  • If the fire is not in your room, leave if you can. First, feel the door. If it’s cool, open it slowly and go to the nearest exit. Crawl if there is smoke. Fresh air will be at the floor. Take your key so you can go back if you can’t use the exits.
  • NEVER USE ELEVATORS DURING A FIRE. They could stop at the fire floor.
  • If your door is hot, don’t open it. Your room may be the safest place to be. Seal all cracks with wet towels. Shut off fans and air conditioners. Signal out your window. Call the fire department and wait to be rescued.

Your Best Defense Against a Fire is to Plan Ahead
