HOW TO PROPERLY USE A FIRE EXTINGUISHER
P.A.S.S. the Fire Extinguisher
Using a fire extinguisher can be intimidating, especially if you do not know the proper way to use it. Lucky for you, there is a very useful anagram to help you remember the four easy steps.
Pull: Pull the pin. There is a small pin that prevents the fire extinguisher from accidentally being used, all you have to do is pull it out and continue on to the next step.
Aim: Aim the nozzle of the fire extinguisher at the base of the fire.
Squeeze: Squeeze the lever you just pulled the pin out of. Remember to squeeze it slowly and evenly, so it is as effective as possible.
Swipe: Swipe from side to side to cover all areas the fire may have spread to.
