           primary escape route, use your second way out. Never open
           doors that are warm to the touch.
           •  If you must escape through smoke, get low and go under the
           smoke to your exit. Close doors behind you.
           •  If smoke, heat or flames block your exit routes, stay in the
           room with doors closed. Place a wet towel under the door and
           call the fire department or 9-1-1. Open a window and wave a   Surrounded by family and friends, Congresswoman Meng presents an American flag flown
