When it comes to home safety, fire prevention and protection is top of the list. Help protect your family members and property from small fires with the addition of a home fire extinguisher. A fire extinguisher can be an important tool in containing or putting out minor fires once your home has been safely evacuated and the fire department has been called. Home fire extinguishers are rated for use on Class A, B, and/or C fires. Class A fires contain common combustible items like wood, paper and plastic. Class B signifies flammable liquids. Class C fires involve electrical equipment.
You can choose between a rechargeable or non-refillable fire extinguisher. A non-refillable option is for single use only. A rechargeable fire extinguisher can be reused once its refilled by a professional. While most homeowners opt for a kitchen fire extinguisher to put out small cooking fires, they are also handy in the garage. Own a boat? A mariner fire extinguisher is a smart safety measure.
