Fire Safety
To operate a fire extinguisher properly:

Pull —┬áThe first step is to pull the pin (it usually has the inspection tag attached to it) that prevents the handle from being squeezed.

Aim — The second step is to aim the spray nozzle, or if attached the hose nozzle, at the fire. Aim low at the base of the fire.

Squeeze — The third step is to squeeze the handle to spray the contents. Remember a standard fire extinguisher has less than 30 seconds of spray time.

Sweep —┬áThe final step is to sweep back and forth as you spray the base of the fire.
