4. Fire in a Resident’s Unit

If a fire occurs in your unit, and you are not able to smother the fire or extinguish it with a private fire extinguisher, call 911 and give the following information:

  • Location
  • Street Address
  • Your Name
  • Floor Number
  • Unit Number

Take your key and close your unit door. DO NOT LOCK THE DOOR. Proceed immediately to the stairwell. Do not use the elevator.

Do not stop to collect belongings because precious Fire Department response time can be lost. Do NOT return to the unit until told to do so!
