R = Respond and remove persons in immediate danger.
A = Alert three ways: verbally, dial 4-6666, and activate the fire alarm pull stations
C = Confine the fire by closing ALL doors
E = Extinguish the fire ONLY if you can do so WITHOUT putting yourself in danger. If you cannot safely extinguish the fire, leave the area. Seal off the room with a damp towel or blanket at the door.
