Should you fight the fire?
Fight the fire only if:
  • Everyone is evacuated from the building and the fire department has been called.

  • The fire is confined and not spreading.

  • You have an escape route that is not blocked by fire.

  • The extinguisher is the right type for the fire.

  • You know how to use the extinguisher.

If you can not put it out, leave immediately and close off the area. Make sure the Fire Department inspects the fire site, even if you believe it is out.
