"SHOULD I TRY TO FIGHT THIS FIRE?"

BEFORE you begin (or even consider) fighting a fire:
 

  • Call the Fire Department (Dial 911).

  • Make sure the building is being evacuated.

  • Determine whether the fire is small and is not spreading.

  • Confirm you have a safe path to an exit not threatened by the fire.

  • Know how to use a fire extinguisher.

 

NEVER fight a fire if even one of the following is true:
 

  • The fire is spreading beyond the immediate area in which it started or is already a large fire.

  • The fire could block your escape route.

  • You are unsure of the proper operation of the extinguisher.

  • You doubt that the extinguisher you are holding is designed for the type of fire at hand or is

  • Large enough to fight the fire.
