The most import thing firefighters say you can do to be safe is to be aware and educated about fire safety. 

"Have to ways out of your room. Sleep with your door shut. If there is smoke get low. If there is no smoke, look and see where the fire is. Last step is to get low," said Oklahoma City Fire Department Chief, Richard Kelly. 

The fire department recommends every home have a working smoke detector, which are available through the department.
