P.A.S.S.

 

The best way to remember how to use a fire extinguisher is to employ the acronym P.A.S.S.:

  • Pull

  • Aim

  • Squeeze

  • Sweep

Make sure the extinguisher is directed at the base of the fire. The base is the point where the flames gather the fuel for the fire, which is why it should be your first area of attack. Sweeping the solution or foam from one side to the other will smother and cover the fire which automatically eliminates the last two components of the fire triangle, i.e. heat and oxygen.
