Using a fire extinguisher might not be easy if you don’t have prior training. But most fire extinguishers use the P.A.S.S. Technique.

  1. PULL… Pull the pin. This will also break the tamper seal.
  2. AIM… Aim low, pointing the extinguisher nozzle (or its horn or hose) at the base of the fire.NOTE: Do not touch the plastic discharge horn on CO2 extinguishers, it gets very cold and may damage skin.
  3. SQUEEZE… Squeeze the handle to release the extinguishing agent.
  4. SWEEP… Sweep from side to side at the base of the fire until it appears to be out. Watch the area. If the fire re-ignites, repeat steps 2 – 4.

If you realize the fire isn’t going out, GET OUT OF That Area As soon as you can.
