Quick Fire Safety Tip - Using a Fire Extinguisher
No one has more invested in a small business than its owner, which is the primary reason why business owners are generally quick to take advantage of the clear-cut guidelines provided them by their local council fire code. Fortunately, fire compliance is easy when the rules are grounded in common sense, and there are qualified fire system services companies available to provide assistance when needed. Fire protection means more than fire safety and fire extinguishers. It means the preservation of a business owner’s primary asset, the business that provides him and his family with income. The chances are that a fire that occurs anywhere other than a place where it was deliberately set, such as a fireplace, constitutes an emergency. Any emergency situation requires clear thought and quick, purposeful action. Fire Extinguishers are a home and business protection device that are designed to be used in a fire emergency. As is the case with any emergency action, like the Heimlich Maneuver and CPR, sufficient practice using Fire Extinguishers when no emergency threatens is often the key to a person’s ability to act swiftly and accurately when a true emergency arises. Take the time to become familiar with the P.A.S.S. system and how to apply it to the Fire Extinguishers near you. What is the PASS system? PASS is a helpful acronym to remember when a fire breaks out and you’re fortunate enough to have a fire extinguisher at hand. The P stands for PULL the fire extinguisher’s pin. A means AIM at the fire’s base. S represents SQUEEZE the extinguisher’s trigger. The final S is a reminder to SWEEP the fire extinguisher in a decisive, back and forth motion to completely extinguish the fire. Fire extinguishers are not meant to be used with fires that have already escalated out of control. By definition, this means one that has reached the ceiling, engulfed a room, or that otherwise endangers your safety. It is worth remembering that the preservation of human life is the prime consideration in any fire. No matter how precious the things the fire threatens might be, they are not as important as your life. If the fire is producing copious smoke, is moving in the direction of explosive hazards, or threatens to block the only exit, your best strategy is to exit calmly and quickly and let the fire department fight the fire. The best way to truly fight fire by eliminating fire risk. Eliminate areas of flammable litter and debris, station working fire extinguishers of the appropriate type at even intervals, and maintain clear pathways to exits. Be aware that even after small fires have been extinguished, they still might reignite.
