What to do in the event of a fire or other evacuation-based hotel emergency


  • Count the number of doors from your room to the emergency exit, so you know the distance to an exit in an emergency
    where there is smoke or no light

  • Look for a fire sprinkler system in the hotel...if there is not one, stay on a lower floor for a quicker evacuation in a crisis

  • If the fire alarm goes off, evacuate immediately

  • Never take the elevator in an emergency evacuation, always use the stairs

  • If you encounter smoke, get low...most fire fatalities occur due to smoke inhilation

  • Time is of the essence in an evacuation

  • NEVER assume it is a false alarm, always evacuate immediately
