Fire Extinguisher Safety Tips for Tempe?

10/11/2021 (Permalink)

A portable fire extinguisher in a home. We are trusted leaders in fire restoration in Maricopa County.

The National Fire Protection Association recommends using portable home fire extinguishers when:

  • The fire is confined to a small area, such as a wastebasket, and is not growing
  • Everyone has exited the building
  • The fire department has or is being called
  • The room is not filled with smoke

SERVPRO® of North Tempe and Mesa East offers these fire extinguisher safety tips from the NFPA:

  • To operate a fire extinguisher, remember the word 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 from side-to-side
  • Select a multi-purpose extinguisher that can be used on all types of home fires that is large enough to put out a small fire but not so heavy as to be difficult to handle
  • Choose a fire extinguisher that carries the label of an independent testing laboratory
  • Read the instructions that come with the fire extinguisher and become familiar with its parts and operation before a fire breaks out
  • Install fire extinguishers close to an exit and keep your back to a clear exit when you use the device
