How to Put Out a Fire with a Fire Extinguisher
The Encinitas Fire Department put on a demonstration yesterday on how to put out a fire using a fire extinguisher. [photo courtesy of photo8.com on Flickr]
This demonstration was part of the class on Emergency Preparedness being offered by the Natural Living Source. The demo was held in the parking lot outside the Blue Star Body Lounge who hosted the site for the remainder of the Emergency Preparedness class.
Critical to putting out a fire with a fire extinguisher, of course, is knowing HOW to use it, and the videos will explain the procedure and show you how it's done.
The important way to remember the procedure is PASS:
P - Pull the ring to release the handle on the extinguisher
A - Aim the hose
S - Squeeze the handle to release the chemicals
S - Sweep back and forth with the hose, spraying LOW at the base of the flames NOT at the middle or top
I hope you will share this important message with others who might benefit. And for those who don't even have a fire extinguisher in their homes, well, perhaps this will inspire them. Per the Encinitas Fire Department a home fire extinguisher can be used to put out many small fires and possible prevent a worse fire or tragedy.
The Blue Star Body Lounge offers a wide range of services for hands, feet, skin, face and hair, along with holistic treatments including hot stone massage therapy. Located at 1104 Garden View Road in Encinitas ~ (760) 633-3333
