How To’s

How to use a fire extinguisher:
Work fast……the typical extinguisher has as little as 8 seconds of life, so know how your’s works in advance. Then remember the acronym “PASS“.

1) Pull the pin.

2) Aim the nozzle at the base of the flames.

3) Squeeze the trigger.

4) Sweep the spray from side to side.
