To use a fire extinguisher, remember the acronym PASS. This stands for:
  • PULL the pin
  • AIM the hose at the base of the fire
  • SQUEEZE the lever
  • SWEEP the hose from side to side
Not all personnel are trained to use a fire extinguisher. Only those who are trained and assessed at least annually should attempt to extinguish a fire that requires the use of an extinguisher.
