In the case of fire from oil, dont use water. It will explode and cause injury. Quickly escape If fire already reaches the ceiling, escape as fast as you can. Dont panic, and cover your mouth with a wet handkerchief/towel. Keep a low position while escaping, and try not to inhale smoke. Once outside, do not go back inside.

  • Fires outside your homeIf inside a department store, listen to the announcements, and evacuate calmly while following instructions from store employees. During hotel stays, always check for 2 or more evacuation routes. Smoke is more dangerous than fire. Stay low to the ground, and cover your nose & mouth with a wet handkerchief/towel. If inside a high-rise building/apartment, evacuate to the ground floor using the stairs. Elevators are stopped, so please refrain from using it. If smoke prevents going to the lower floors, evacuate to the roof and wait for rescue. Always evacuate calmly.Once you have evacuated outside, dont go inside.
