Fire Safety Week

October 12th, 2016 by Mike Vasilinda


This is Fire Prevention Week and people visiting the state capitol are being asked “when was the last time you used a fire extinguisher? The question was posed to reporter Mike Vasilinda, who like most of us, said quite awhile. He then got a demonstration for the office of the Fire Marshall’s Renee McCord.

“The acronym that we use is PASS, so its Pull, Aim, Squeeze, Sweep. You want to pull the pin, aim the nozzle, pull the handle and sweep, so when you sweep the fire you aim at the base of the fire” she explained.

Q:And the question was, when was the last time you used a fire extinguisher and most people answer answer like me…I don’t know.”

“Exactly, never. But you want to be prepared if you need one” she replied.

Sounds like good advice anytime of the year.
