People often purchase fire extinguishers and leave them in a corner without ever knowing how to use an extinguisher and what type of situations your fire extinguisher can be used in.

How to use a fire extinguisher?

The correct procedure for using a particular fire extinguisher can vary with manufacturers, it is important that you carefully read the instructions and familarise yourself with them.  However when using any fire extinguisher there are certain guidelines you should follow. To help you remember just remember the acronym


Pull the pin – The pin prevents the handle from being accidently squeezed, the first thing you should always do is remove the pin.


Aim – You should always aim the fire extinguisher at the base of a fire.


Squeeze – Next you should squeeze the handle to release contents of the fire extinguisher.  Releasing the handle will stop the release of contents.  Remember most standard fire extinguisher have a 30 second release time.


Sweep – Carefully more towards the fire sweeping back and forth.  Even when the fire appears to be out, keep a careful eye on the area in case the fire reignites.
