Fire Extinguishers Can Save Lives

A portable fire extinguisher can save lives and property by putting out a small fire or containing it until the fire department arrives; but portable extinguishers have limitations. Because fire grows and spreads so rapidly, the number one priority for residents is to get out safely. 

To operate 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.
