I thought using a fire extinguisher was a no-brainer until I came across this training put on by Ashland Fire and Rescue. I learned that the white substance inside of the extinguisher is not harmful. I also learned that there is a wrong and right way to suppress a fire.

Doing it the right way will probably keep you from getting burned. If you do it incorrectly not only can you be burned but the fire could burn out of control. If you have a business in Ashland and have a fire extinguisher handy you should call the fire department and schedule a training to learn the right way to use an extinguisher. It could help you prevent a disaster. You can reach the department at 552-2229.

Thanks and see you soon.
