      In addition to what 51 Truck-K said, it is also an pnemonic for using a portable fire extinguisher...
      Pull the pin
      Aim the extinguisher
      Squeeze the handle
      Sweep the base of the fire

        "I have a dream. It's not a big dream, it's just a little dream. My dream — and I hope you don't find this too crazy — is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."
