THE NEAREST FIRE ALARM BOX

BASIC FIRE PREVENTION AND FIRE PREPAREDNESS MEASURES

These are fire safety tips that everybody should follow:

  1. Every apartment should be equipped with at least one smoke detector. (All apartment

 buildings constructed after July 2009 are required to be equipped with multiple

 interconnected smoke alarms that sound throughout an apartment.) Check them

 periodically to make sure they work. Most smoke detectors can be tested by pressing

 the test button. Replace the batteries in the spring and fall when you move your clocks

 forward or back an hour, and whenever a smoke detector chirps to signal that its

 battery is low. The smoke detector should be replaced on a regular basis in accordance

 with the manufacturer’s recommendation, but at least once every ten years.

  1. Carelessly handled or discarded cigarettes are the leading cause of fire deaths. Never

 smoke in bed or when you are drowsy, and be especially careful when smoking on a

 sofa. Be sure that you completely extinguish every cigarette in an ashtray that is deep

 and won’t tip over. Never leave a lit or smoldering cigarette on furniture.

  1. Matches and lighters can be deadly in the hands of children. Store them out of reach of

 children and teach them about the danger of fire.

  1. Do not leave cooking unattended. Keep stove tops clean and free of items that can

 catch on fire. Before you go to bed, check your kitchen to ensure that your oven is off

 and any coffeepot or teapot is unplugged.

  1. Never overload electrical outlets. Replace any electrical cord that is cracked or frayed.

 Never run extension cords under rugs. Use only power strips with circuit-breakers.

  1. Keep all doorways and windows leading to fire escapes free of obstructions, and report

 to the owner any obstructions or accumulations of rubbish in the hallways, stairwells,

 fire escapes or other means of egress.

  1. Install window gates only if it is absolutely necessary for security reasons. Install only

 approved window gates. Do not install window gates with key locks. A delay in

 finding or using the key could cost lives. Maintain the window gate’s opening device

 so it operates smoothly. Familiarize yourself and the members of your household with

 the operation of the window gate.

  1. Familiarize yourself and members of your household with the location of all stairwells,

 fire escapes and other means of egress.

  1. With the members of your household, prepare an emergency escape route to use in the

 event of a fire in the building. Choose a meeting place a safe distance from your

 building where you should all meet in case you get separated during a fire.

  1. Exercise care in the use and placement of fresh cut decorative greens, such as

 Christmas trees and holiday wreaths. If possible, keep them planted or in water. Do

 not place them in public hallways or where they might block egress from your

 apartment if they catch on fire. Keep them away from any flame, including fireplaces.

 Do not keep for extended period of time; as they dry, decorative greens become easily

 combustible.

BUILDING INFORMATION

Building Construction

In a fire emergency, the decision to leave or to stay in your apartment will depend in part

on the type of building you are in.

Residential buildings built before 1968 are generally classified either as “fireproof” or

“nonfireproof.”

Residential buildings built in or after 1968 are generally classified either as

“combustible” or “non-combustible.” The type of building construction generally

depends on the size and height of the building.

A “non-combustible” or “fireproof” building is a building whose structural components

(the supporting elements of the building, such as steel or reinforced concrete beams and

floors) are constructed of materials that do not burn or are resistant to fire and therefore

will not contribute to the spread of the fire. In such buildings, fires are more likely to be

contained in the apartment or part thereof in which they start and less likely to spread

inside the building walls to other apartments and floors. THIS DOES NOT MEAN

THAT THE BUILDING IS IMMUNE TO FIRE.

While the structural components of the building may not catch fire, all of the contents of

the building (including furniture, carpeting, wood floors, decorations and personal

belongings) may catch on fire and generate flame, heat and large amounts of smoke,

which can travel throughout the building, especially if apartment or stairwell doors are

left open.

A “combustible” or “non-fireproof” building has structural components (such as wood)

that will burn if exposed to fire and can contribute to the spread of the fire. In such

buildings, the fire can spread inside the building walls to other apartments and floors, in

addition to the flame, heat and smoke that can be generated by the burning of the contents

of the building.

Be sure to check Part I (Building Information Section) of this fire safety guide to see

what type of building you are in.

Means of Egress

All residential buildings have at least one means of egress (way of exiting the building),

and most have at least two. There are several different types of egress:

Interior Stairs: All buildings have stairs leading to the street level. These stairs may be

enclosed or unenclosed. Unenclosed stairwells (stairs that are not separated from the

hallways by walls and doors) do not prevent the spread of flame, heat and smoke. Since

flame, heat and smoke generally rise, unenclosed stairwells may not ensure safe egress in

the event of a fire on a lower floor. Enclosed stairs are more likely to permit safe egress

from the building, if the doors are kept closed. It is important to get familiar with the

means of egress available in your building.

Exterior Stairs: Some buildings provide access to the apartments by means of stairs and

corridors that are outdoors. The fact that they are outdoors and do not trap heat and

smoke enhances their safety in the event of a fire, provided that they are not obstructed.

Fire Tower Stairs: These are generally enclosed stairwells in a “tower” separated from

the building by air shafts open to the outside. The open air shafts allow heat and smoke to

escape from the building.

Fire Escapes: Many older buildings are equipped with a fire escape on the outside of the

building, which is accessed through a window or balcony. Fire escapes are considered a

“secondary” or alternative means of egress, and are to be used if the primary means of

egress (stairwells) cannot be safely used to exit the building because they are obstructed

by flame, heat or smoke.

Exits: Most buildings have more than one exit. In addition to the main entrance to the

building, there may be separate side exits, rear exits, basement exits, roof exits and exits

to the street from stairwells. Some of these exits may have alarms. Not all of these exits

may lead to the street.

Roof exits may or may not allow access to adjoining buildings.

Be sure to review Part I (Building Information Section) of this fire safety guide and

familiarize yourself with the different means of egress from your building.

Fire Sprinkler Systems

A fire sprinkler system is a system of pipes and sprinkler heads that when triggered by

the heat of a fire automatically discharges water that extinguishes the fire.

 The sprinkler system will continue to discharge water until it is turned off. When a

sprinkler system activates, an alarm is sounded.

Sprinkler systems are very effective at preventing fire from spreading beyond the room in

which it starts. However, the fire may still generate smoke, which can travel throughout

the building. Apartment buildings constructed before March 1999 were generally not

required to have fire sprinkler systems. Some apartment buildings are equipped with

sprinkler systems, but only in compactor chutes and rooms or boiler rooms. All apartment

buildings constructed after March 1999 are required by law to be equipped with fire

sprinkler systems throughout the building.

Be sure to review Part I (Building Information Section) of this fire safety guide to

learn whether your building is equipped with fire sprinkler systems.

Interior Fire Alarm Systems

Although generally not required, some residential buildings are equipped with interior

fire alarm systems that are designed to warn building occupants of a fire in the building.

Interior fire alarm systems generally consist of a panel located in a lobby or basement,

with manual pull stations located near the main entrance and by each stairwell door.

Interior fire alarm systems are usually manually-activated (must be pulled by hand) and

do not automatically transmit a signal to the Fire Department, so a telephone call must

still be made to 911 or the Fire Department dispatcher. Do not assume that the Fire

Department has been notified because you hear a fire alarm or smoke detector sounding

in the building.

Be sure to review Part I (Building Information Section) of this fire safety guide to

learn whether your building is equipped with an interior fire alarm system and

whether the alarm is transmitted to the Fire Department, and familiarize yourself

with the location of the manual pull stations and how to activate them in the event of

a fire.

Public Address Systems:

Although generally not required, some residential buildings are equipped with public

address systems that enable voice communications from a central location, usually in the

building lobby. Public address system are different from building intercoms, and usually

consist of loudspeakers in building hallways and/or stairwells. Starting in July 2009,

residential buildings that are more than 125 feet in height are required by law to be

equipped with a one way voice communication system that will enable Fire Department

personnel to make announcements from the lobby to building occupants in their

apartments or in building stairwells.

Be sure to review Part I (Building Information Section) of this fire safety guide to

learn whether your building is equipped with a public address system.

EMERGENCY FIRE SAFETY AND EVACUATION INSTRUCTIONS

IN THE EVENT OF A FIRE, FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS OF FIRE

DEPARTMENT PERSONNEL. HOWEVER, THERE MAY BE EMERGENCY

SITUATIONS IN WHICH YOU MAY BE REQUIRED TO DECIDE ON A

COURSE OF ACTION TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND THE OTHER

MEMBERS OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD. THIS FIRE SAFETY GUIDE IS

INTENDED TO ASSIST YOU IN SELECTING THE SAFEST COURSE OF

ACTION IN SUCH AN EMERGENCY. PLEASE NOTE THAT NO FIRE

SAFETY GUIDE CAN ACCOUNT FOR ALL OF THE POSSIBLE FACTORS

AND CHANGING CONDITIONS; YOU WILL HAVE TO DECIDE FOR

YOURSELF WHAT IS THE SAFEST COURSE OF ACTION UNDER THE

CIRCUMSTANCES.

General Emergency Fire Safety Instructions:

  1. Stay calm. Do not panic. Notify the Fire Department as soon as possible. Firefighters

 will be on the scene of a fire within minutes of receiving an alarm.

  1. Because flame, heat and smoke rise, generally a fire on a floor below your apartment

 presents a greater threat to your safety than a fire on a floor above your apartment.

  1. Do not overestimate your ability to put out a fire. Most fires cannot be easily or safely

 extinguished. Do not attempt to put the fire out once it begins to quickly spread. If you

 attempt to put a fire out, make sure you have a clear path of retreat from the room.

  1. If you decide to exit the building during a fire, close all doors as you exit to confine the

 fire. Never use the elevator. It could stop between floors or take you to where the fire

 is.

  1. Heat, smoke and gases emitted by burning materials can quickly choke you. If you are

 caught in a heavy smoke condition, get down on the floor and crawl. Take short

 breaths, breathing through your nose.

  1. If your clothes catch fire, don’t run. Stop where you are, drop to the ground, cover your

 face with your hands to protect your face and lungs and roll over to smother the lames.

Evacuation Instructions If The Fire Is In Your Apartment

(All Types of Building Construction)

  1. Close the door to the room where the fire is, and leave the apartment.
  2. Make sure EVERYONE leaves the apartment with you.
  3. Take your keys.
  4. Close, but do not lock, the apartment door.
  5. Alert people on your floor by knocking on their doors on your way to the exit.
  6. Use the nearest stairwell to exit the building.
  7. DO NOT USE THE ELEVATOR.
  8. Call 911 once you reach a safe location. Do not assume the fire has been reported

 unless firefighters are on the scene.

  1. Meet the members of your household at a predetermined location outside the building.

 Notify responding firefighters if anyone is unaccounted for.

Evacuation Instructions If The Fire Is Not In Your Apartment

“NON-COMBUSTIBLE” OR “FIREPROOF” BUILDINGS:

1.Stay inside your apartment and listen for instructions from firefighters unless

 Conditions become dangerous.

  1. If you must exit your apartment, first feel the apartment door and doorknob for heat. If

 they are not hot, open the door slightly and check the hallway for smoke, heat or fire.

  1. If you can safely exit your apartment, follow the instructions above for a fire in your

 apartment.

  1. If you cannot safely exit your apartment or building, call 911 and tell them your

 address, floor, apartment number and the number of people in your apartment.

  1. Seal the doors to your apartment with wet towels or sheets, and seal air ducts or other

 openings where smoke may enter.

  1. Open windows a few inches at top and bottom unless flames and smoke are coming

 from below. Do not break any windows.

  1. If conditions in the apartment appear life-threatening, open a window and wave a towel

 or sheet to attract the attention of firefighters.

  1. If smoke conditions worsen before help arrives, get down on the floor and take short

 breaths through your nose. If possible, retreat to a balcony or terrace away from the

 source of the smoke, heat or fire.

“COMBUSTIBLE” OR “NON-FIREPROOF” BUILDING

1.Feel your apartment door and doorknob for heat. If they are not hot, open the door

 slightly and check the hallway for smoke, heat or fire.

  1. Exit your apartment and building if you can safely do so, following the instructions

 above for a fire in your apartment.

  1. If the hallway or stairwell is not safe because of smoke, heat or fire and you have

 access to a fire escape, use it to exit the building. Proceed cautiously on the fire escape

 and always carry or hold onto small children.

  1. If you cannot use the stairs or fire escape, call 911 and tell them your address, floor,

 apartment number and the number of people in your apartment.

 

  1. Seal the doors to your apartment with wet towels or sheets, and seal air ducts or

 other openings where smoke may enter.

  1. Open windows a few inches at top and bottom unless flames and smoke are

 coming from below. Do not break any windows.

  1. If conditions in the apartment appear life-threatening, open a window and wave a

 towel or sheet to attract the attention of firefighters.

  1. If smoke conditions worsen before help arrives, get down on the floor and take

 short breaths through your nose. If possible, retreat to a balcony or terrace away

 from the source of the smoke, heat or fire.
