One evening last week, members of Cub Scout Pack 125 learned how to use a fire extinguisher to put out a live fire.
The pack visited McDuffie County Fire Rescue’s headquarters station, where Lt. Ed Lewis provided instruction prior to letting the young scouts try the extinguishers.
They learned about the different types of extinguishers and how different classifications of extinguishers must be used on the proper types of fires.
With the help a short film and Lewis’ instruction, they learned the PASS approach for putting out a fire. PASS is an acronym which stands for each of the four steps, which are:
•Pull (the pin)
•Aim (at base of the fire)
•Squeeze the handle
•Sweep back and forth
