If the fire alarm goes off in the Hostel or you hear a “fire” signal:
Before opening the door you should be sure that there is no fire outside the door: put your hand on the door and touch the metal lock or the door-handle. Do not open the door if it is hot.
If a smoke and flame allow you to leave a building, you:
Go away from a flame; do not look for anything and do not collect anything;
Do not use the lift
Go to exit on fours or crawlway because smoke and harmful burning products can be at the level of your height or higher.
Close the doors on your way so as not to let the fire spread
If there is a plenty of smoke, throat is rasping or eyes are tearing you should move and cover respiratory tract with a multilayer cotton fabric and breathe through a piece of fabric. If you have a possibility wet an external side of a fabric. This way you will save your bronchial tube and lungs from the impact of irritating materials. However keep in mind that this way does not save you from a carbon monoxide poisoning.
When you left dangerous area do not come back for something: firstly, danger has grown there; secondly, nobody will look for you and rescue you because everyone saw that You left this building.
If you left the building without being noticed immediately tell people (staff of the hostel) near this building about it. It is in order to prevent unnecessary risk while searching for you.
If smoke and flame do not allow to leave the building You:
Do not panic!
Check if there is another possibility to leave the building (for example through the window) if you cut off from the basic evacuation route by flame and smoke.
In order to be protected from a fire and smoke try to make your area airproof if there is no possibility to evacuate: close front door tight, wet any piece of fabric (pieces of clothes or curtains) and close (shut) all the door chinks inside the room. In order to avoid penetration of the smoke from the corridor and from outside you should close tight windows, small windows, shut ventilation panes, close fanlights of ventilation grills;
Constantly wet door, floor and pieces of fabric if you have some water.
Call fire-fighting service “01” or call to a rescue service “112” or call following mobile number: “_______________
Go on fours if the room is filled with smoke so it is easier to breathe this way.
Cover your face with a wet piece of fabric.
Make your way towards the window, stay near the window and attract attention of people from the street.
Try not to open and break the window if there is no extreme need (suffocation feeling or impaired judgment) as air-tightness of a room can be disturbed room will fill with smoke and it will be impossible to breathe even near the open window. With a penetration of smoke fire also penetrates into the room. Remember this before breaking the window.
When attracting attention of people and setting the signal to rescue workers there is no need to open windows and scream. For example you can stand in front of the window and wave with a big bright piece of fabric, write on the window “SOS” with a lipstick or draw a huge mark of exclamation.
Concerning the fact that our Hostel is on the first floor and the easiest way of evacuation is to leave through any window in case it is impossible to leave the building through front door.
