Think PASS When Using a Fire Extinguisher

2/9/2021 (Permalink)

The time to learn how to use a fire extinguisher should not be when you actually have to use it.  Review these easy steps below to teach yourself how to effectively use a fire extinguisher in the event that the need arises:

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

After reviewing these tips, if you are still unsure how to operate your fire extinguisher, take a trip to your local fire house.  The fire personnel at your neighborhood station will be more than happy to show you how to use your extinguisher.
