７－３． Fires – in your home Don’t panic, and quickly call 119. Quickly try to douse the flame. Use fire extinguishers, buckets of water, dirt, or sand, （ Help others fill water as well. ） Don’t force yourself. In the case of fire from oil, don’t use water. It will explode and cause injury. Quickly escape If fire already reaches the ceiling, escape as fast as you can. Don’t 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.
７－３． Fires – outside your home ・ If 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.
