Condo Fire Safety 101

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,

  1. Hold upright and pull ring pin.
  2. Stay back 10 feet. Aim at base of fire.
  3. Squeeze lever, sweep side to side.
