How to Use ReinoldMax Fire Extinguishers

These fire extinguishers are easy for anyone to use since they are in aerosol can format and do not carry the weight of traditional styles. To extinguish a fire, simply follow these steps:

1-Holding the fire extinguisher in one hand, depress the red button on the handle to unlock the unit.

2-Point the can toward the fire and spray the foam over all ignition sources.

3-Spray using a downward sweep, generously covering the flames entirely so they will be smothered.

4-Call 911 if necessary.

That is all there is to extinguishing a fire using ReinoldMax fire extinguishers. The foam smothers the oxygen that feeds flames, effectively putting out the flames and starting the cooling process immediately. Once the foam has been dispersed and the fire is out, cleanup is easy and provided it is not damaged by fire, the foam does not ruin equipment! Be sure to replace your fire extinguisher if you have used a significant amount of foam so you are prepared in the future.
