Fire Extinguisher Safety

Did you know a portable fire extinguisher is the first line of defense in the control of fires? Most fires, in the beginning stage, can be extinguished easily with portable equipment, but only if the equipment is readily accessible and the person knows how to use it. All fire extinguishers should reflect the character of the fires anticipated in your home or work facility. Fire extinguisher locations should be clearly marked and readily accessible. Knowing where the fire extinguishers are and how to use them should be top priority in your home and work place. Do you, your family members, or co-workers know where all the fire extinguishers are located and how to use them?
