FIRES DON'T DISCRIMINATE
Know what to do before a fire happens.

Extinguisher operation (Remember PASS)
Pull the pin
Aim at the base of the fire
Squeeze the trigger

Here are a few rules:
- Locate the nearest fire extinguisher.
Become familiar with its type and operation. If you have not been trained to use an extinguisher-don’t use it. Ask your supervisor about fire extinguisher training.
- If a chemical spill is involved, immediately report it to your supervisor.
- Know how to safely evacuate- it could be your most important role in a fire.
Stay calm. Exit out the nearest door, meet at your prearranged assembly area, and check in with the head-count person. Our district has evacuation procedures. Learn them!
