How to use a fire extinguisher

KEY WEST, Fla. (Oct. 8, 2008) Richard Niles, a Naval Air Station Key West firefighter, teaches a boy how to properly use a fire extinguisher during an annual Fire Safety Fair at Sigsbee Park, Fla. “Preventing Home Fires” was the theme of the fair, and attendees learned simple ways to keep their homes and families safe from fire, such as using fewer extension cords and checking smoke detectors regularly.
