Fire Extinguishers

Operating Instructions:


Pull the pin, breaking the plastic inspection wire.

Aim the nozzle toward the fire.  Some hose assemblies are clipped to the extinguisher body and must first be released.

Squeeze the handle to discharge.  The handle can be released to stop discharge at any time.  Before approaching the fire, try a short test burst to ensure proper operation.

Sweep the nozzle back and forth at the base of the flames.

After extinguishment, back away from fire - Never turn your back.
