Pull Station Alarms
Alert Entire Building

Know their location
Regular Drills save lives
Sometimes the pull station alarm is an attractive menace. There are 20 nuisance alarms for every actual fire alarm. Nonetheless, treat every alarm as if it were an actual emergency.
Pull the pin
Aim the nozzle
Sweep the fire
Pulling the pin allows you to discharge the extinguisher. Aim at the base of the fire, not the flames. Squeeze and sweep from side to side. Remember the limitations of a fire extinguisher. It may be best to activate the alarm and evacuate. Position yourself between the fire and an exit. Keep the exit at your back.
