How to use: Stoping a Kitchen Fire
Remove the fire blanket by pulling down sharply on the tabs hanging from the bottom of the package.
Protect your hands. Roll the corners of the blanket over your hands to protect them.
Place the blanket over the fire. Once you have the blanket secured over your hands, place it over the flames.
Turn off any heat source, such as a stove burner. Expect some smoke to run through the blanket. This is normal. It is not a sign the blanket itself is on fire or not working properly.
Leave the blanket in place for at least 15 minutes. Do not attempt to move or touch the blanket until it’s cool again.
Call the fire department. You need to contact the fire department to make sure the flame is fully extinguished.
How to use: Dousing a Clothes Fire
Wrap someone whose clothes are burning in the fire blanket. If someone’s clothes are on fire, wrap him or her in a fire blanket. Once again, use the edges of the blanket to protect your own hands to prevent getting burned. Roll them in the blanket until it’s securely in place.
Seek medical assistance. Burns caused by fire should be evaluated by a medical professional as soon as possible. Even if you think the burns look minor, any injury caused by fire should be evaluated by a medical professional. Take the person whose clothes were on fire to the ER immediately
