FIRE EXTINGUISHERS FOR THE HOME
Home fire extinguishers are all classified as ABC class. This means that the majority of all fires that could start in a residential building could be extinguished. In the home fire extinguishers should be place in the kitchen and at an exit. Don’t feel like your over doing it if you place one fire extinguishers at the front and back door. If you live in a multi-floor single family home then you may want to place one upstairs in the hallway. The reason why I suggest that you use all of these fire extinguisher is because most homes do not have a sprinkler system installed. People will also underestimate the possibility that a fire will start. Even if you don’t cook or do anything in your home that could start a fire, what about when your best friend who smokes stays overnight.
When you buy fire extinguishers you should stick to the 5 pound or 2.5 pound extinguishers because they are easy to handle. Fire extinguishers that are 10 or 20 pounds are sometimes too heavy for some people to handle effectively. You should also make sure that you understand instructions on how to use a fire extinguishers. You would be surprised at how many people point the stream of water or dry powder coming from an extinguishers at the top of the fire and not the base. Finally you should make sure you have a first aid kit in your home and better yet, why don’t you learn CPR. The more you know about safety the better.
Don’t let a horrible situation catch you by surprise, be prepared.
