Fire Survival Tips
Smoke inhalation can be fatal. If confronted by heavy smoke keep low to the floor where the air is clearer and breathe through a wet towel or handkerchief.
If any part of your clothing catches fire drop to the ground and roll around to smother the flames. Use a blanket or towel or rug to help smother the flames.
You Will Survive
As long as you don’t panic!.
Close the door to your apartment when everyone is out. Make sure you know where the stairwell is and go straight to it.
It only takes 5 minutes to walk down the stairs from the 27th level.
The stairwells have their own air pressure controls to keep the majority of smoke out.
There are 10 emergency lights on each residential floor plus in the stairwells and lifts. The lights will keep working for at least 30 minutes as they have a battery back up system.
You cannot evacuate from the roof
