What should I do as I leave my hotel room?

Leaving Your Room

Each time you prepare to leave, check all windows and doors in your room to make sure they are closed and locked and then check to make sure your door is not hot before opening. If the door is hot there probably is a fire on the other side. Pull the alarm and call the operator or front desk to report it. Wait for instructions. Relax as much as possible. Panic can be your biggest enemy during emergencies. If the door is not hot simply pull the door completely closed behind you as you leave. Make sure the latch has engaged. Take a moment before you leave to try the door and make sure it is closed and locked.
