How to use equipment

The most important parts of fire extinguisher are the handle,the cylinder and the nozzle.In order to release the chemicals,you must press the handle.So,first,remove the locking pin.Next,hold the cylinder upright.Now stand about three metres from the source of the fire.Pick up the nozzle and aim it at the best of the fire.Squeeze the handle for the chemicals to be released.You have to move the nozzle from side to side.Keep on pressing the handle until the fire is completely out.If you cannot control the fire or if it spreads,you have to ask someone for help to call the Fire Department.While waiting for the Fire Brigade to respond get yourself out of the house.Inform the neighbours to take precautionary measures.
