Fire Extinguishers

  • Keep fire extinguishers handy. Mulit-purpose dry chemical extinguishers work well on wood, grease, other flammable liquid and electrical fires. Make sure there is at least one extinguisher on each floor of your house, particularly in or near the kitchen, garden, laundry room and workshop.

  • Have every adult in the household read the extinguisher instrucion manual so they know how to use it properly. Remember PASS ( Pull Pin, Aim Extinguisher, Squeeze Lever, Sweep extinguisher at base of fire).

  • Periodically inspect (Preferrably monthly) your extinguishers to determine if they need to be recharged or replaced.
