HOW TO PROPERLY USE A FIRE EXTINGUISHER
Boat requirements - Coast Guard Approval
Less than 26'
One B-I size extinguisher
(Fire extinguishers are not required on outboard-powered pleasure boats less than 26' in length, not carrying passengers for hire, without permanently-installed fuel tanks, that do not have spaces where explosive or flammable gasses or vapors can collect.)
26' to less than 40'
Two B-I type OR one B-II type approved portable fire ext.
dry chem min 2lbs to less than 10lbs. Must include USCG approved bracket.
40' to no more than 65'
Three B-I type OR one B-I type PLUS one B-II type approved portable fire extinguishers
dry chem 10lb and above
When a fixed fire extinguishing system is installed in machinery spaces it will replace one B-I portable fire extinguisher.
First, call 911. It is better to have the fire department on their way in case it gets out of control. Do not use water. It will increase the surface area of the grease and make the fire worse. If your clothing catches on fire, STOP, DROP, and ROLL! Have a practiced escape-route for you and your family.
Oven - Leave door closed, turn oven off. If fire persists, use a fire extinguisher.
Stovetop - With an oven-mitt, turn stove off, put a lid over the pan. If fire persists, use a fire extinguisher.
Vehicle - Use a fire extinguisher and move away from the vehicle.
To prevent fires in the kitchen, keep ovens, hood, and stovetop clean from grease build-up.
