Hotel Motel Safety

Vacations and business travel make hotels and motels our home away from home. It is just as important to be prepared and know what you would do in a hotel/motel emergency as it is in your own home.

Be Safe When Traveling

If You Can't Escape

SHUT off fans and air conditioners.
STUFF wet towels in the crack around the doors.
CALL the fire department and let them know your location.
WAIT at the window and signal with a flashlight or light colored cloth.
