Escape Tips

Familiarise yourself with the environment and remember the exits

When you are in an unfamiliar environment, for their own safety, be sure to pay attention to the evacuation routes, safety exits and stairway directions, so that when it is critical to escape the scene as soon as possible. Remember: when you are safe and sound, you must think of danger and reserve a path for yourself.

Passageway exit, unobstructed

Stairs, passages, safety exits, etc. are the most important escape routes in case of fire, and should be guaranteed to be unobstructed, and should not be piled up with sundry objects or set up gates and locks, so that they can be passed safely and quickly in case of emergency.

Extinguish small fires to benefit others

When a fire occurs, if you find that the fire is not large, has not yet caused a great threat to people, and there are enough firefighting equipment around, such as fire extinguishers, fire hydrants, etc., you should fight to control the small fire, extinguish it, and do not panic screaming and scurrying. Remember: fight for time, fight the “early fire”.

Keep calm and evacuate quickly

In case of a sudden fire, in the face of thick smoke and flames, first of all, keep yourself calm, quickly judge the dangerous and safe places, decide on a way to escape, and evacuate the dangerous place as soon as possible. Do not blindly follow the crowd and crowd each other and rush about. When evacuating, run towards a bright place or an open place outside. If the passage has been blocked by smoke and fire, you should leave with your back to the direction of the smoke and fire. Remember: One can only think out of the box if one is calm and collected.

Don’t enter dangerous places and don’t covet property

When you are in danger, you should evacuate as soon as possible and do not waste your escape time on searching for and removing valuables because you are concerned about them. Those who have already escaped from danger, do not return to the dangerous place and throw yourself into the net. Please remember: there is no fear of being burnt without wood when there is a green hill.

Simple protection, cover your nose and crawl

When escaping through a smoke-filled route, prevent smoke poisoning and asphyxiation. In order to prevent the fire smoke choking, you can use a towel, mask over the nose, creeping evacuation approach. Smoke is lighter than air and floats on the upper part, so evacuation close to the ground is the best way to avoid smoke inhalation. When going through a fire or smoke blockade, pour cold water on your body or wrap your head and body with a wet towel or quilt before going out. Remember: It’s better to have more protective tools at hand than bare hands.

Make good use of the channel, do not enter the lift

In the event of a fire, choose to enter the relatively safer stairway according to the situation. In addition to using the stairs, you can also use the building’s balcony, window sill, etc. to climb to a safe place around, along the downpipe, lightning rod lines and other building structures in the protruding objects slide downstairs. Please remember: When escaping, it is extremely dangerous to take the lift.


Evacuation place, solid waiting for help

Touch the door of the room has felt hot, then once the door is opened, flames and smoke are bound to come to your face. At this time, you can take to create a place of refuge, hold on and wait for help. First of all, you should close the doors and windows of the fire, open the doors and windows of the back of the fire, with a wet towel or wet cloth plugging the doorway, and then keep drenching the room with water to prevent the penetration of smoke and fire, and hold on to the room until the rescue workers arrive. Remember: A strong shield is not afraid of a sharp spear.


Slowly shake and gently toss for help

If you are surrounded by smoke and fire and are unable to escape, you should try to stay on the balcony, window and other places where you can be easily found and avoid the smoke and fire. In the daytime, you can shake the brightly coloured clothes out of the window, or throw light eye-catching things; in the evening, that is, you can use a torch to keep flashing in the window or knocking things, and in time to send an effective distress signal, to attract the attention of the rescuers. Remember: expose yourself fully in order to save yourself effectively!

When a fire breaks out, surrounded by smoke, gas and flames, many people are buried in the fire, while others escape from death. In the face of smoke and flames, there is a great possibility to save yourself and others if you are calm and resourceful in applying the knowledge of fire escape.


Thanks to the strong support of all departments, the drill was a complete success, consolidating the staff’s safety awareness and strengthening their ability to deal with emergencies.


Here, Tortai also calls on everyone to work without forgetting safety, enhance fire awareness, and once the fire is found, we should respond calmly and do a good job of safety precautions.
