When Not to Fight a Fire

Never fight a fire:

  • If the fire is spreading beyond the spot where it started.
  • If you can't fight the fire with your back to an escape exit.
  • If the fire can block your only escape.
  • If you don't have adequate fire-fighting equipment.

If Any of these Situations exist - Leave the area immediately!
