Fire drill

Hi there, I am busy going over my fire drill now.

If you live in a flat 2 stories above ground... and there is a fire in the stairwell, is it best to secure ourselves in a room with door closed and sealed with wet towels at the bottom... or to go onto the balcony?

I would think rescue from the balcony would be easier, but if they take their time a bit then staying in a room would be safer than a more exposed balcony???

What are your thoughts?

Many thanks!

Balcony, I think.

Have you consulted with your local Fire Officer?

They can visit you, to give advice.

Best ask a pro, yes?
