Apartment Fire Safety

​Learn what to do if a fire happens in your building. It's important to know the fire safety features in your building and the emergency procedures outlined in the building's fire safety plan. Know the locations of all available exit stairs from your floor in case the nearest one is blocked by fire or smoke.
