Fire Extinguisher Presentation

MEDFORD, Ore. — A local fire extinguisher company says most people don’t know the right way to use one in a fire.

AAA Civic Fire Extinguisher is giving a presentation to the Rogue Valley Rotary Club on Wednesday on how to best use a fire extinguisher. The company’s owner said people should stand ten feet away and aim at the base of the fire.

“A lot of people do need reminders, they are not really sure how fire extinguishers work as far as distance, and how close you have to be to the fire, a lot of people are under the impression you have to be right up within two feet of the fire, that is not the case,” AAA Civic Fire Extinguisher Scott Meadows.

The demonstration will be held at 6 p.m. at Jackson Creek Pizza.
