Safety Seminar — Learn how to use your Fire Extinguishers

There are thousands of RV fires each year. “An RV can burn completely to the ground in as little as six minutes,” according to RV expert and author Mark Polk.

During Annual Meeting week there is a safety seminar on  “Using Your Fire Extinguisher”
Thur., July 19, 2-4 p.m., in the Clubhouse

You probably have a fire extinguisher or two in your rig, but do you remember how to use them in time of need?

In this class, presented by the Sutherlin Fire Department, participants will be able to:

  • Identify an ‘unserviceable’ fire extinguisher that should be replaced.
  • Describe the types of fires upon which their fire extinguisher will be effective.
  • Explain PASS, the four steps to operate most fire extinguishers.
  • Use or watch others use a fire extinguisher to extinguish a fire such as a kitchen or engine fire.

Sign up for this safety seminar on the Fun Days Sign-up Sheets in the Big Room in the Clubhouse.
