Basic fire precautions
•• Know the location of fire exits and fire alarms.
•• Make sure you know
–– The location of the fire extinguisher nearest to your
work area
–– The limitations and proper use of the A, B, C, and D
type fire extinguishers
–– Which type of fire extinguisher you should use on
each type of fire—using the wrong extinguisher (e.g.,
water on burning oil) can cause a fire to spread
•• Keep fire exits, alarms, and firefighting equipment free of
obstructions at all times.
•• In case of fire
–– Warn others—yell for help if required.
–– Use fire extinguishers if the fire is small.
–– If the fire is (or could become) too large to control,
call 911 or your local emergency number, and turn
on the fire alarm immediately. Post lookouts to direct
firefighters to the fire.
•• In the case of electrical, propane, or gas fires, the
first step is to shut off the supply. Therefore, before
commencing work, find out where all the disconnects
and main gas valves are located.
