    6. 6. How to Use a Fire Extinguisher It’s easy to remember how to use fire extinguisher if you remember the acronym PASS: PULL AIM SQUEEZE SWEEP
    7. 7. How to Use a Fire Extinguisher Pull the pin… This will allow you to discharge the extinguisher Aim at the base of the fire… Hit the fuel. If you aim at the flames... Squeeze the top handle… the extinguishing agent will fly right through and do no good. This depresses a button that releases the pressurized extinguishing agent. Sweep from side to side… until the fire is completely out. Start using the extinguisher from a safe distance away, then slowly move forward. Once the fire is out, keep an eye on the area in case it re-occur.
    8. 8. Rules for Fighting Fires Fire can be very dangerous and you should always be certain that you will not endanger yourself or others when attempting to put out a fire. For this reason, when a fire is discovered… 1. Assist any person in immediate danger to safety, if it can be accomplished without risk to yourself. 2. Call 911 or activate the building fire alarm. 3. Know what is burning. If you don’t know what’s burning, you won’t know what kind of extinguisher to use. 4. As you evacuate a building, close doors and windows behind you as you leave. This will help to slow the spread of smoke and fire.
    9. 9. Rules for Fighting Fires Do not fight fire if:  You don’t have adequate or appropriate equipment. If you don’t have the correct type or large enough extinguisher, it is best not to try fighting the fire.  Your instincts tell you not to. If you are uncomfortable with the situation for any reason, just let the fire department do their job.
    10. 10. Rules for Fighting Fires The final rule is to always position yourself with an exit or means of escape at your back before you attempt to use an extinguisher to put out a fire. In case the extinguisher malfunctions, or something unexpected happens, you need to be able to get out quickly. So that you wouldn’t be trapped.
    11. 11. Always Report the Use of a Fire Extinguisher Report any use of fire extinguisher to EHS as soon as possible. The extinguisher must be inspected and refilled to make sure it is ready for use in an emergency.
    12. 12. Conclusion Fire extinguishers should be everywhere within the buildings, work places, hotels and, hopefully, YOUR HOME! Being comfortable using extinguishers involves being familiar with them. Make sure you know where the closest fire extinguisher is, what type it is and what class of fire it can be used to extinguish. Remember, being able to use fire extinguisher correctly could save your life or the lives of others!
