How to Use a Fire Extinguisher
Welcome to part two of our fire extinguisher safety series. In this blog, we're sharing an easy to remember acronym from our friends over at the U.S. Fire Administration that teaches how to properly operate a fire extinguisher.
When operating a fire extinguisher, remember the word PASS:
- Pull the pin. Hold the extinguisher with the nozzle pointing away from you and release the locking mechanism.
- Aim low. Point the extinguisher at the base of the fire.
- Squeeze the lever slowly and evenly.
- Sweep the nozzle from side-to-side.
Up next on the blog, we're covering why fire extinguisher maintenance matters. Stay tuned!
