If a small fire broke out in your home or business, would you know how to keep it from turning into a churning blaze?
In this issue, we’ll share tips for putting how small fires.
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A FIRE EXTINGUISHER.If you don’t already have one, now’s the time to get one. Most in your hardware stores will be labeled as “A:B:C”; this typically means that they’ll work for just about any type of fire.
When flames are noticed, it’s key to maintain your cool. To make this easy, remember the acronym PASS.
If you notice an electrical fire, do not use water! Instead, turn off the power and then cover the fire with a non-flammable blanket.
PUTTING OUT KITCHEN OR COOKING FIRESAgain, your first action should be to turn off the power. Then, since most fires in the kitchen are sparked by grease, cover the pan with a metal lid.
If there’s no lid available, cover the flames with baking soda – which contains sodium bicarbonate, just like a Class C fire extinguisher.
PUTTING OUT A GAS FIRETurn off the gas supply, then cover the flames with a thick rug. You can also use cool water or your fire extinguisher.
