Too often, consumers fail to prevent fires and fight minor fires because they do not have functional extinguishers in their home.
Fire safety experts urge consumers to find the extinguisher that covers several varieties of fires such as trash, paper, wood, liquid, electrical and even grease-related. When a grease-related fire erupts, don’t attempt to fight it with water. Experts urge to keep a box of baking soda nearby in order to fight grease fires and avoid the flames from spreading. Find a suitable place for the extinguisher that is both visible and accessible.
Installing detectors that identify heat or smoke could also help you and your loved ones to stay safe.
