- Types of Fires
Class A Fire – A fire fueled by wood, paper, rubber or plastic. Water, pressurized or not, may
be used to extinguish it.
Class B Fire – A fire fueled by a flammable liquid, gas or grease. Use a Class B Extinguisher,
which is dry chemical, on this fire. NEVER use water!
Class C Fire – An electrical fire. A carbon dioxide or multipurpose (ABC) fire extinguisher
must be used to extinguish this type. NEVER use water!
- Portable Fire Extinguishers
Most handheld property extinguishers are multipurpose rated (ABC) and good for use on any
fire. The exceptions to this are the telephone and computer rooms that may have Halon or
carbon dioxide extinguishers. The kitchen range also has a special system installed above the hot
line that is remotely activated.
How to use a Fire Extinguisher
Check gauge to make sure it is charged. (Indicator needle must be in green on dial).
Follow the P.A.S.S. procedures:
Pull “pin” on top to break seal. Do not pull “pin” while
Aim extinguisher at base of fire
Sweep extinguisher side to side at base of fire

The site has a ‘hooter’ fitted’ on a rooftop, and it resounds throughout the site when released. All clients of the NH54 Guest House and the place of worship should gather in the park opposite the outdoor stage. After a head count, the person-in-charge will keep their safety until it’s all clear.
