FIRE EXTINGUISHER LOCATION & BASIC OPERATION  

Following is a list of fire extinguisher locations in the buildings:

On every floor next to the stairwells, all Mechanical Rooms, and in all Tenant Suites.

All extinguishers in the building may be used on fires originating from wood, paper, plastic, grease, oil and electricity. 

 

Operating a Fire Extinguisher:

 

  • To open the cabinet, turn the handle and pull open.

  • Remember the “P-A-S-S” method for effective fire extinguisher use:

 

P – Pull the safety pin.  This is usually the pin with a string attached.

A – Aim the hose, nozzle or horn at the base of the fire.

S – Squeeze the trigger handle

S – Sweep from side to side and watch for the re-flash of the fire.

 

NOTE:  ALWAYS MAINTAIN A THREE-FOOT CLEARANCE AREA AROUND FIRE EQUIPMENT.  ONCE THE EQUIPMENT HAS BEEN USED, DO NOT TRY TO RE-HANG IT, EVEN FOR A FEW SECONDS.  USED EXTINGUISHERS SHOULD BE SERVICED IMMEDIATELY!
