Fire Extinguisher

It may be possible to put out a small fire using a portable fire extinguisher. Follow these guidelines when using a fire extinguisher.

  • Activate the nearest fire alarm pull station.
  • Do not take unnecessary risks or put yourself in danger.
  • Stay 6 to 8 feet away from the fire.
  • Use the PASS process to deploy the fire extinguisher:
    • Pull the pin.
    • Aim at the base of the flame.
    • Squeeze the lever.
    • Sweep the extinguisher slowly back and forth.
  • If the fire is not put out by the extinguisher, leave the area immediately.
  • Contact LCC Police immediately (dial 911 from a college phone or (517) 483-1800 from a non-college phone) upon reaching an area of safety.
