March 27, 2023
Most homeowners know that it’s a good idea to have fire extinguishers in the home to eliminate household fires as they start. However, not all fire extinguishers are created equal. This video helps explain which extinguishers are the best, as well as where they should be stored in the home.
The presenter explains that recommendations from national fire protection services can be a bit vague, so it’s valuable to get more specific instructions concerning fire extinguishers in the home. A fact he shares that might be surprising is that there are several types of rooms that need fire extinguishers.
Among these, the kitchen and garage are especially important, as many household fires are started in one of these two areas. Additionally, the garage is the place where you want to have the biggest size of extinguisher that you would have in a residence.
As explained by the video’s presenter, there are situations in which you should leave your home rather than try to extinguish the fire by yourself. That’s why just as important as placing extinguishers in the correct place is knowing when and in which circumstances to use them.
