There is a natural tendency for a person to try to use an extinguisher on a fire.  But it is vital that they only try to do so when there is no danger and they should follow the ‘ONE FIRE, ONE ‘ rule.  If it might take more than one extinguisher to put out the fire, then it’s too big to tackle and they need to evacuate immediately.

However, when there is a chance of putting out a fire with an extinguisher, there is a danger that by using the wrong type of unit, there will be added danger.

A person must therefore know what kind of fire extinguisher should be used for each class of fire and the safety measure to take when using an extinguisher.
