How to Choose a Fire Extinguisher For the Home: 7 Steps
How to Use a Fire Extinguisher

During the winter months, most fires begin in the home and can take as little as two minutes to become life threatening. Cooking and heating are the most common causes for house fire injuries and death. Everyone should have a plan and be prepared.

Using a Fire Extinguisher

House and workplace fires can be alarming, but by knowing how to respond with an extinguisher, you can prevent a fire from causing major damage. Here are some tips:

  • Know your extinguisher types. Extinguishers are label with letters designating their use. Check an extinguisher before using it to ensure it is compatible with the fire and will not exacerbate the situation.
    A-B-C: For use on ordinary combustibles like paper or clothing, flammable liquids like gasoline, and electrical wiring (most common)
    D: For use on combustible metals such as aluminum.
    K: For use on cooking oils and fats.
  • Maintain your extinguisher. Make sure it is easily accessible. Inspect it monthly for obvious physical damage or corrosion. Lift or weigh it to make sure it is full.
  • Remember the acronym P.A.S.S. to operate effectively. PULL out the safety pin. AIM the nozzle at the base of the fire. SQUEEZE the lever, slowly and evenly. SWIPE the extinguisher from one side of the fire to the other.
