Fire extinguisher knowledge helps contain fires

Do you know how to properly use a fire extinguisher in the event of an emergency?

Last night, Fernie Fire Rescue responded to two separate structure fires. In each incident more serious property damage was avoided by individuals in the area who knew how to properly operate a fire extinguisher and were able to contain the fire before crews arrived on scene.

If you would like to learn more about personal fire safety, please contact Fernie Fire Rescue for further information or join them at their Family Safety Day on September 21.

Here’s a video on how to use a fire extinguisher
