The FDNY and FDNY Foundation urge all New Yorkers to always close the door when escaping a fire. Closing the door isolates fire and prevents smoke, heat and flames from spreading to hallways and stairs. When escaping a fire in an apartment, be #FDNYSmart- CLOSE THE DOOR as you make your exit. Closing the door Saves Lives.

Please see the video below to ensure households remember to always close the door.
Also remember to place Space Heaters at Least THREE Feet Away from Combustibles.
Combustible materials such as blankets, curtains and newspapers can easily catch on fire. Be sure to keep these types of materials at least three feet away from space heaters.
