• Surviving A Hotel Fire

    From DARYL STOUT@CAPCITY to ALL USERS on Thu Sep 23 00:01:00 2010
    When you check into your hotel/motel at a square dance festival, or at
    the National Square Dance Convention, you should follow these rules to
    better improve your chances of survival, should there be a fire at your
    hotel during your stay. It is advised to NOT smoke in bed...fires started
    by smokers in bed spread quickly, due to the flammable nature of the mattresses, etc...and you can lose your life this way!!

    * When you check into your room, find out EXACTLY where the Fire Exits are
    located.

    * Know where your room key is at ALL TIMES. You may have to return to your
    room if the halls are filled with smoke.

    * At the first hint of the smell of smoke, call the Fire Department. Tell
    them your room number, then call the front desk.

    * Feel the doorknob. If it is HOT, DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR!! If it isn't,
    peek outside. If it is not too smoky, go to the fire exit. Keep a wet
    towel over your face. If it gets too smoky, turn around, and go all the
    way up to the roof. Fireman will rescue you there.

    * If you are forced to stay in your room, DO NOT break the window. You will
    need to close it if there is smoke outside.

    * Fill the bathtub with water. Wet the towels and sheets, and shove them
    around the door. Block all air vents with wet towels and sheets. If the
    walls are hot, use the ice bucket to throw as much water on the wall as
    you can.

    * Above all, keep fighting. Don't quit. The longer you stay conscious, the
    better your chances for survival.
