  • An extinguisher can clear an exit path.

  • An extinguisher will not put out a large fire.


  • Be awareof radiant heat.

  • Be awareof electrical apparatus. Flames conduct Electricity.

  • Be aware of noxious fumes from fire.

  • When the extinguisher is used a blast of steam/ gasses can result.

  • Lots of fine airborne debris may be present during and after use. (Asthma, breathing)

Using the Extinguisher

This is a four step action P.A.S.S.

  • Pull the Pin (The inspection tag is usually attached to it).

  • Aim the nozzle at the base of the fire.

  • Squeeze handles together (MAX 30 seconds).

  • Sweep back and forth at the base of the fire.

When finished Lay the Fire Extinguisher on its side DO NOTplace back on the hook.

Use Fire Hose Reel

Precaution: NEVER use on an electrical fire You will be Electrocuted.

This is a Three Step Action

Turn on the Stop Cock. This will release the nozzle.

Pull the hose to unroll the hose. (Two people if possible)

Twist the nozzle for water flow.
