pray onto the fire

So I'm reviewing this "Joint Commission Continuous Readiness Resource Guide" sent to me by my corporate overlords and this typo just really caught my eye:

"The code word for the procedure to use the fire extinguisher is PASS:

"Pull the pin,
Aim at the base of the fire,
queeze the handle,
pray onto the fire."

Hallelujah brother!

Joint Commission refers to JCAHO, the Joint Commission for the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, a sort of credentialing organization for hospitals, clinics, agencies, etc. They survey regularly and part of the process is interviewing random employees about things like evacuation procedures, emergency procedures, fire estinguisher locations, etc.
