Fire Extinguisher Usage
Whether it is your home or your business, it is important for you and everyone in the area to know where a fire extinguisher is, and how to use it. While we hope you never have a reason to use it, here is an easy way to remember how to properly use it: PASS
- PULL the pin.
- AIM the nozzle or hose at the base of the fire. Make sure to keep the recommended safe distance away from the fire at all times.
- SQUEEZE the lever to discharge the fire extinguishers agent.
- SWEEP the nozzle or hose from side to side until the fire has been extinguished. Even after it is out, continue around the fire, and make sure all sides are completely out.
After you have finished, PASS the job to SERVPRO of Allen, Barren, Hart, Green and Taylor Counties for a great post fire clean. We are able to handle not only the fire extinguisher agent, but also help clean up from the fire, soot, and smoke the fire caused.
