The training was very successful as Lesfam Company involved all their security, warehouse some department heads personals. With the training, the workers had the chance to hold the fire extinguisher rehearse a lot of methods to general procedures for responding to a small, incipient-stage fire. Some of the step been shared at the training is

  • Identify a safe evacuation path before approaching the fire.
  • Do not allow the fire, heat or smoke to come between you and your evacuation path.
  • Use the PASS technique from a safe distance: PULL the pin; Aim low, pointing the extinguisher nozzle at the base of the fire; SQUEEZE the handle, to release the extinguishing agent; SWEEP from side to side at the base of the fire until it appears to be out.
  • Evacuate if the extinguisher runs out of fluid and the fire is not out.
