Person on Fire

What To Do If Someone Catches On Fire

STOP - where you are

DROP - to the floor

ROLL - around on the floor

This will smother the flames, possibly saving your life. If someone else catches on fire, smother the flames by grabbing a blanket or rug and wrapping them up in it. If a fire extinguisher is available, use it to extinguish the flames. That could save them from serious burns or even death.
