Video Transcript

To be able to extinguish a fire you have to act quickly. Whether you choose to fight a fire or not, it is critical to close nearby doors and windows. Smoke inhalation kills more people than flames, so be aware. If you feel that it’s safe to try and extinguish a fire, approach it carefully, with your back to an exit. Before using an extinguisher double-check that it’s correct for the materials that are burning.
