FDNY Asks You to "Close the Door"
Yesterday, our city suffered one of the worst fire disasters in recent history, when an apartment building on East 181st Street was engulfed in a 5-alarm fire early Sunday afternoon. The DOE is working to ensure support for families. The FDNY has fire safety resources for families available at www.FDNYSmart.org.
Please remember when escaping a fire in your apartment, CLOSE THE DOOR as you make your exit. You can prevent the fire from spreading and harming others. Closing the door saves lives.
