Use of Fire Extinguisher

Using a fire extinguisher isn’t rocket science by any stretch, but there are a few basics you need to be aware.Check the gauge on the extinguisher to see if it’s fully charged and pressurized.

Pull the pin.
Aim the nozzle at the base of the fire. Hitting the tops of the flame with the extinguisher won’t be effective. You got to smother the sucker at its base.

Squeeze the trigger. In a controlled manner
squeeze the trigger to release the agent.

Sweep from side to side.
Sweep the nozzle from side to side until the fire is put out. Keep aiming at the base while you do so. Most extinguishers will give you about 10-20 seconds of discharge time.

Keep Your Home Safe With Proper Fire Extinguisher Placement.
