  • Fire safety in a room.


    Heat and smoke rise up within a room.

    Is it safer to be high up or lower down in a smoky room?


    If a room is on fire it's best to crawl out of the room to avoid the heat and smoke.

  • Safety.


    If your clothes are on fire, you can put out the flames by rolling on the ground.


    If you or your clothes catch fire the first thing you should do is stop, drop and roll. Doing this can safely put the fire out on your clothes.

    Smoke can make it difficult to breathe and can even cause suffocation. Is it safe for Uma to go back?
