Do you know how to use a Fire Extinguisher in Your New York City Home, Business or Restaurant?
We see them at work, in restaurants and coffee shops, at school, in movie theaters and hopefully in our homes. But do YOU know how to effectively use a fire extinguisher? Most people do not….here’s some help. Just remember the word “PASS’. Pull, Aim, Squeeze and Sweep.
Pull the Pin,
Aim low at the base of the fire,
Squeeze the trigger and
Sweep the unit back and forth at the base of the fire,
REMEMBER TO HOLD THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER UPRIGHT !!!!!
If the situation arises where you have to use a fire extinguisher to put out a fire, the natural inclination is to discharge the fire extinguisher directly at the flames. This is a mistake. “There’s a limited amount of fire extinguishing agent and you may run out of it before the fire is extinguished.” Most extinguishers discharge in 5-15 seconds!
Are there certain types of fire extinguishers that are better for different situation than others?
