IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT

FIRE EXTINGUISHERS

NOTE: Be sure the extinguisher is rated to fight the type of fire
most likely to occur in the area you choose to install it. Since house-
hold fires commonly start in the kitchen, you should always install
an extinguisher in the kitchen. For added security, you should also
install additional extinguishers in utility areas, and other living areas in
your household.
BF5 is rated 5-B:C. It is NOT rated to fight Class A fires.

READ BEFORE INSTALLING OR USING

THIS FIRE EXTINGUISHER!

F
ire extinguishers are classified by fire type. The A, B and C
ra
ti
ng system defines the kinds of burning materials each fire
e
x
tinguisher is designed to fight. The numbers in front of the
A, B, or C indicate the rating for size of the fire the unit can
extinguish. Using the wrong type of fire extinguisher can do
m
ore harm than g
ood. Make sure you understand which fire
extinguisher to use on each class of fire!
Class A rating:
The agent/powder is suitable for
fighting small fires involving wood, paper, cloth,
rubber, and some plastics.
Class B rating: The agent/powder is suitable for
fighting small fires involving grease, oil, gasoline,
k
erosene, and other flammable liquids.
Cl
ass C ra
ting:
T
he ag
ent/powder is suitable for
fighting small fires in "live" electrical equipment.
WHE

RE TO INSTALL THIS EXTINGUISHER

A
Fire Extinguisher Should Be Mounted:
In the vicinity of (but not on or in) a potential source of heat
and/or fi
re, like an oven or stove.
Where it is easy to reach, near an exit or an escape route
from the room.
In a location that is convenient, in plain sight, and 3-1/2 to 5
f
eet (1 to 1.5 meters) above the floor.
Store the extinguisher high enough to keep it out of the reach
o
f small children.
On a clean, dry surface where the temperature does not go
above 120° F (49° C) or below –40° F (–40° C).

HOW TO INSTALL THIS EXTINGUISHER

NOTE: Since surface types vary, mounting screws are not included.
Purchase screws or bolts specifically designed for the surface on
w
hich you will mount the fire extinguisher. The fire extinguisher label
lists its maximum weight.
Re
move mounting bracket from extinguisher by unlocking the clasp
and pulling the bracket away from the extinguisher. Use two strong
screws (such as #8 machine screws) to mount the bracket securely
on
to metal or another solid surface that can support the weight of the
fire extinguisher. The mounting bracket must be secure so you can
remove the extinguisher quickly in an emergency.
1. Install the mounting bracket
as shown in “Installing The
Mounting Bracket” using strong
screws (such as #8 machine
screws) with washers and nuts.
The screws should not be
longer than necessary to
accommodate a washer and
nut. Mounting screws, washers,
and nuts are not included (see
Note above.)
2. After installing the mounting
bracket, replace the extinguisher
on the bracket.
BF5 for Mobile Homes only.
This extinguisher can be mounted in
the special wall receptacle provided
in your mobile home or on a wall
bracket (bracket can only be pur-
chased through Consumer Affairs:
800-323-9005 and order part number
B70-78-00). Position the mounting
strap across the extinguisher to
secure the extinguisher. The label
should face outward so it can be
easily read. See Figure.
If you are
us
ing the mounting bracket

0-
78-00, follow mounting
instructions number 1 and 2
above.

CHECKING AND INSPECTING

THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER

1. Inspect and test the extinguisher once a
w
eek. Start by removing the extinguisher
from the mounting bracket/cap. Check
the extinguisher pressure by pressing
the green button on top of the cap as
sho
w
n i
n
“Checking the Pressure.
If the button pops back up, the
e
x
t
i
ng
uisher is properly pressurized
and ready to use. If the button stays
down, the extinguisher has lost pressure
a
nd must be replaced.

Do not mount the extinguisher on drywall or plaster without
adequate support. Use strong screws or bolts to mount the
bra
cket securely into solid wood or metal that can support it,
l
ike a wooden partition stud. Secure mounting is needed so
you can remove the extinguisher quickly and easily in an emer-
gen
cy. Also, if the extinguisher is not held securely, it could
dr
op to the floor and injure people or damage the extinguisher
Do not break the plastic loop holding the safety pin in place!
This loop prevents accidental discharge of the fire
e
xtinguisher. Break the loop only in an emergency before
us
ing the fire extinguisher.
HO

W TO OPERATE YOUR FIRE

EXTINGUISHER IN A FIRE EMERGENCY

TO FIGHT THE FIRE
1. Remove the extinguisher from the mounting bracket or mounting
strap.
2. Hold the unit firmly with the nozzle facing
away from you. Pull out the pin to break the
Safety Seal. You won’t be able to squeeze
the trigger until the safety seal is removed.
3. Stand back 6 feet (2 meters) from the fire
a
nd ma
ke sure the fire is not between you
and your exit.
4. Hold the extinguisher upright and aim the
nozzle at the base of the fire.
5
. Press and hold the trigger to discharge the
po
w
d
e
r
.
6. Sweep the spray at the base of the burning
material, using quick side-to-side motions.
(If the spray scatters the fire, move back.)
7. Move slowly towards the fire as the
extinguisher spray pushes the fire back.
M
a
i
ntain a 6-foot (2 meter) distance between
you and the front of the fire at all times.
8. Completely discharge the contents of the extinguisher and make
sure the fire is completely out. Flashbacks are common with fires.
9. For kitchen fires on a kitchen stove, turn off the stove immediately
if possible, otherwise as soon as it is safe.
10. If you suspect a fire had an electrical origin, shut off the electrical
po
w
e
r
,
if possible, without eliminating your escape route. Do not
touch electrical wires or appliances.
1
1
.
After you have completely discharged your extinguisher, leave the
building and close all the doors behind you.
Make sure your extinguisher may be safely and effectively
us
ed on the small fire you want to fight. Always use extreme
caution when fighting any fire. Fight a fire only where there is
a clear escape p
ath to allow you to get out safely if the fire
ge
ts worse.
Avoid breathing smoke and heated fumes; stay low if
necessary. Burning materials will release toxic fumes.
I
nhaling these fumes may cause injury or death.
Always stand back far enough away from the fire—near
an exit—and make sure nothing is between you and your
escape r
oute. If you get too close to a fire, you risk getting
burned or hit by splattering material like grease. If the fire is
too hot or smoky for you to get within 6 feet (2 meters), DO
N
OT try to fight the fire yourself. Evacuate immediately and
call the F
ire Department.
For fires on a kitchen stove, turn oven or burners off
i
mmediately if possible. If you can’t reach the oven or burner
controls safely, extinguish the fire first, then turn them off.
Fight the fire from an upwind direction with your back to any
str
ong air current. Trying to fight a fire with currents blowing
towards you can result in serious injury.

DISPOSING OF A USED EXTINGUISHER

TER THE FIRE IS EXTINGUISHED

Do not turn the electrical power back on or plug in any appliances
until the area has been cleaned up completely. It is very important
t
o remove the powder from electrical equipment after a fire. If the
powder gets wet, it can conduct electricity. (Using a dry chemical
extinguisher on wet electrical equipment may be hazardous for this
reas
on.) This may worsen an electrical leakage problem, impair the
equipment’s insulation, or create an electrical shock hazard.
If the fire was on a kitchen stove:
Make sure the oven and all burners are turned off.
Clean up the powder completely before using the stove or oven.
See “How to Clean After Using a Fire Extinguisher”. Ventilate the
ar
ea thoroughly.
If you think the fire had an electrical origin:
Shut off the electrical power, if possible--do not touch any
ele
ctrical wires or appliances.
Leave the building and close all doors behind you. Call the Fire
D
epartment and have them inspect the entire house. As soon as
they say it’s safe to return, ventilate the area thoroughly.
Have a licensed electrician inspect your electrical system. Do not
turn the power back on or plug in any electrical equipment until
the inspection has been completed.

. Make sure the tamper indicator
(“
safety seal”) is still intact as shown
in “Location Of The ‘Safety Seal’” and
t
he nozzle is clean and unobstructed.

. When you finish inspecting the fire
extinguisher, always put it back into the
mou
nting bracket. Make sure the han-
d
le is locked down and the safety seal
is intact.
