This poster explains how to use a fire extinguisher, and it shows in four detailed steps the explanation of the acronym PASS.
PASS is an acronym that reminds the fire extinguisher user to do the following:
- Pull the pin. This will also break the tamper seal.
- Aim low, pointing the extinguisher nozzle (or its horn or hose) at the base of the fire.
NOTE: Do not touch the plastic discharge horn on CO2 extinguishers, it gets very cold and may damage skin.
- Squeeze the handle to release the extinguishing agent.
- Sweep from side to side at the base of the fire until it appears to be out.
Watch the area. If the fire re-ignites, repeat steps 2 – 4.
If you have the slightest doubt about your ability to fight a fire….EVACUATE IMMEDIATELY!
