Knowledge Byte – Applying the P.A.S.S. Technique for Fire Extinguisher Use

Using a fire extinguisher during an emergency can be intimidating, especially if you do not know the proper way to use it. However, fear not, as the P.A.S.S acronym helps you remember the four easy steps when using a fire extinguisher. 


Pull: Pull the pin. There is a small pin that prevents the fire extinguisher from accidentally being discharged. All you have to do is pull it out and continue on to the next step.

Aim: Aim the nozzle of the fire extinguisher low at the base of the fire.

Squeeze: With the pin pulled, gently squeeze the trigger. Ensure that you squeeze it gently so that the extinguisher operates at its utmost efficiency. 

Sweep: Sweep the extinguisher from side to side to cover all areas the fire may have spread to.

Learning this technique helps you to respond confidently in case of an emergency.
