Fire Extinguisher Safety

Fire Extinguisher Safety

Buying a fire extinguisher can be overwhelming.  There are typically many to choose from; each bearing a different label, weight, size and style…so which one should you choose for at home?
Generally speaking, the extinguisher you choose for at home should be a “multi-purpose” or “class ABC”.  This means that it is designed to be used on multiple types of fires; from basic combustibles (paper, cloth, wood, plastic) to flammable liquids (gasoline, grease, and oil), to electrically energized equipment.  The extinguisher should be large enough to put out a small fire, but not so heavy that it is difficult for you or your family to handle.  The extinguisher should also carry the label of an independent testing laboratory such as Underwriters Labs (UL). 
Additionally, you should always take the time to familiarize yourself with the user instructions, the parts, and the operation prior to mounting the extinguisher.  Likewise, ensure your family and friends who may need to use it are too.  The extinguisher should then be installed close to an exit in an area where you can always keep your eyes on the fire and your back to the exit so that you can make an easy escape if the fire cannot be controlled.  Most importantly, KNOW WHEN TO GO.  Fire extinguishers are one element of a fire response plan, but the primary element is safe escape. 
If you make the determination to use an extinguisher, follow these important steps using the acronym PASS.

  • Pull the pin.  Hold the extinguisher with the nozzle pointing away from you and release the locking mechanism.
  • Aim low.  Point the extinguisher at the base of the fire.
  • Squeeze the lever slowly and evenly.
  • Sweep the nozzle slowly from side to side.
