To remember how to use a fire extinguisher, think of the word PASS:

P = PULL the extinguisher’s safety pin

A = Aim the extinguisher at the source of the flames, standing at least 6 feet from the fire

S = Squeeze the trigger and hold it down; keep the extinguisher upright

S = Sweep across the source of the flames until the fire is completely extinguished
