Fire extinguisher in action at this week's Carnation Chamber of Commerce meeting

Weather permitting, firefighters will show locals how to use a fire extinguisher in this week's Carnation Chamber of Commerce meeting, on fire safety, 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 27, at the Carnation Fire Station.

Eastside Fire and Rescue presents the topic. Chamber membres can learn about how to make their business safe from fire hazards.

Have you ever wondered how to use a fire extinguisher? What to do when confronted by a regular fire, or an electrical, car or grease fire? Do you have a building evacuation plan? What if there’s a downed power line on the road? Fire professionals will teach chamber members these basics.

As a bonus, if weather cooperates, EFR firefighters will give a live, hands-on demo on extinguisher use. It's a chance to use an extinguisher, something that might save your own building or home someday.
