It's a good idea to have a charged fire extinguisher in an easily accessible part of the workshop. Keep in mind the following safety tips too — so the extinguisher will never have to be used.
To put out a fire, remember the acronym PASS:
Pull: Pull the pin to unlock the extinguisher's operating lever.
Aim: Aim the extinguisher at the base of the fire.
Squeeze: Squeeze the extinguisher's trigger.
Sweep: Sweep the extinguisher from side to side, across the base of the fire.
