The Fire Cadet program is a mix of classroom and hands-on instruction for area High School students interested in careers as first responders. Today students learned the proper use of fire extinguishers. Want to know an easy trick? Just remember the acronym “P.A.S.S”: Pull (the pin), Aim, Squeeze, Sweep. And if you’re going to replace an old extinguisher dont’ just throw it away-use it for practice. Then you can toss it and it’s not considered a hazardous material.
