Fire Extinguisher Training
When the employees of a scaffold company attended a fire safety
seminar, they watched a fire officer demonstrate the proper way to
operate an extinguisher.
"Pull the pin like a hand grenade," he roared, (typical ex army)
"Then depress the trigger to release the extinguishing agent."
Later an employee was selected to extinguish a controlled fire in
the live demonstration area.
In his nervousness, he forgot to pull the pin.
The instructor roared,
"Like a hand grenade?"
"Like a hand grenade, remember?"
In a burst of confidence he pulled the pin... ………..
and hurled the extinguisher at the blaze
