If the corridor is free of fire or smoke, take your keys, close the door behind you, and leave the building by the nearest exit stairwell, again closing all doors after you. If you encounter smoke in a stairwell, consider taking an alternate stairwell. Be sure to crawl low under smoke. If the alternate is also contaminated with smoke, return to your unit. When you are safely outside call 9-1-1. Never assume that someone else has already done so. Make sure you give your name, the correct address and location of the fire.

During an outage:  Unplug computers, televisions, stereos and other electronic equipment that that may have been left on at the time of the outage to prevent damage caused by power surges when the power is restored and stop possible sources of ignition. Leave a light or radio on so you will know when power is restored. Never use barbecues, propane or gas heaters or portable generators indoors. Do NOT use candles.

 When Power is Restored plug in only the most essential appliances first, and wait 10 to 15 minutes to give the electrical system time to stabilize before connecting everything else.

After power is restored, try to limit electricity use to help relieve potential strain on the system.

If you rely on any life-sustaining equipment/apparatus, develop an emergency back-up plan that will ensure the equipment/ apparatus is operable in the event of a power outage
