Kia Niro: What to do in an emergency / Emergency Commodity

There are some emergency commodities in the vehicle to help you respond to the emergency situation.

Fire extinguisher

If there is small fire and you know how to use the fire extinguisher, take the following steps carefully.

1.Pull the pin at the top of the extinguisher that keeps the handle from being accidentally pressed.

2.Aim the nozzle toward the base of the fire.

3.Stand approximately 2.5 m (8 ft) away from the fire and squeeze the handle to discharge the extinguisher. If you release the handle, the discharge will stop.

4.Sweep the nozzle back and forth at the base of the fire. After the fire appears to be out, watch it carefully since it may re-ignite.

First aid kit

There are some items such as scissors, bandage and adhesive tape and etc. in the kit to give first aid to an injured person.

Triangle reflector

Place the triangle reflector on the road to warn oncoming vehicles during emergencies, such as when the vehicle is parked by the roadside due to any problems.

Tire pressure gauge (If equipped)

Tires normally lose some air in dayto- day use, and you may have to add a few pounds of air periodically and it is not usually a sign of a leaking tire, but of normal wear. Always check tire pressure when the tires are cold because tire pressure increases with temperature.

To check the tire pressure, take the following steps;

1.Unscrew the inflation valve cap that is located on the rim of the tire.

2.Press and hold the gauge against the tire valve. Some air will escape as you begin and more will escape if you don't press the gauge in firmly.

3.A firm non-leaking push will activate the gauge.

4.Read the tire pressure on the gauge to know whether the tire pressure is low or high.

5.Adjust the tire pressures to the specified pressure. Refer to “Tires and wheels” in section 9.

6.Reinstall the inflation valve cap.
