Should you invest in a fire extinguishers? Yes, provided you know when and how to use it.
Fire extinguishers are a very important part of the any proper fire safety plan. Fire extinguishers can save lives and property by putting out a small fire or suppressing it until the fire department arrives.
A crucial step before investing in fire extinguishers is to have proper working smoke detectors and a good home/office building fire evacuation plan.
Fire safety experts at Metro Fire & Safety strongly advise that you attempt to extinguish a fire ONLY if you have first made sure that everyone else has left or is leaving the building, and that someone has called the fire department. Remember, lives are more important than property.
Most of today’s Class A, Class B, and Class C extinguishers are red, with yellow being for Class D. Kitchen extinguishers are mostly white. In the past, color codes with embedded numbers were used on labels representing three basic types of extinguishers: (1) a green triangle with an “A” inside for Class A, (2) a “B” inside a red square for Class B, and (3) a blue circle containing the letter “C” for Class C.
