Each hallway has five fire extinguishers and the garage has three more, mounted on columns with a red stripe.
These ABC-class extinguishers can be used on fires such as: paper, wood, textiles, plastic, electrical, and flammable liquids (oil, gasoline, kerosene, paint).
The instructions for using an extinguisher are clearly marked on the canister, i.e,
- Hold upright and pull ring pin.
- Stay back 10 feet. Aim at base of fire.
- Squeeze lever, sweep side to side.
