• While in most cases it is better to escape and let the fire department extinguish a fire, in the event of a small fire, occupants may be able to stanch it with a personal fire extinguisher. Follow the acronym PASS to properly put out the fire.
• PULL the pin in the extinguisher.
• AIM the nozzle or hose at the base of the flames.
• SQUEEZE the trigger.
• SWEEP the foam across the fire base; do not just aim in one place.
