Answer by Regan Morben

Step one - Check gauge to see if it is charged, you don't want to go near a fire with an empty extinguisher,

Step two - Locate and pull pin near trigger. You cannot discharge the extinguisher until the pin is out.

Step three - Test extinguisher by discharging a small burst in front of your feet, once again you don't want to go near a fire with a non functioning extinguisher.

Step four - Approach fire and and aim at base of the flames, not the flames themselves. Sweep side to side until fire is out or extinguisher is depleted.
