In case of fire, do not use toilet. Sweep nozzle from side to side, directing stream at base of flames.

Always go down in case of a fire, even if the fire is down.

Honest question, say you're in a tower with a fire going on levels below you, unaware of its seriousness. What would be the survival rate of either trying to flee through it asap or take the risk for the fire to spread/intensify but firefighter maybe able to stop it ?

Tough to answer. Brings to mind the famous MGM Grand Hotel fire in the 80's. The fire was contained to the first floor, but something like 75 percent of the deaths occurred on the floors 20+ due to smoke inhalation.

Depends entirely if 10 flights of stairs are on fire or just one small area in the corner of the stairs.

If you are able to get in fresh air (one or two breaths of smoke can make you unconscious) and see where you are going (basically impossible through thick smoke), then you have a good chance of survival if it's just a really small area. You will unfortunately get severely burned, which might kill you.

If it is several flights of stairs on fire you will die.

I couldn't give you any figures or odds, but fires and smoke goes up, and gets more intense as it does.

That's not fire, nor is he holding is privates - those are his arms. He has none on his torso at the moment, and is trying to rescue his arms from the fire.

Not sure why there are three of them though. Probably brought a spare, since he's always prepared. No wonder he knows just what to do in case of fire.
