The Basic on Fire Extinguishers

10/10/2021 (Permalink)

Knowing how to use a fire extinguisher can limit damage when a small fire breaks out.

The kitchen is one common room where fires can occur, so it’s important to make sure there is a working extinguisher near the stove. Physically checking the fire extinguishers annually can be combined with replacing smoke detector batteries. 

Types of Fire Extinguishers

Most homes use Class ABC extinguishers that are typically used to put out burning wood, paper, flammable liquids and electrical fires. They typically include the dry chemical monoammonium phosphate as the dowsing agent.

While this may cause chemical damage in addition to the fire damage, the scope can be  limited to the immediate area if the fire quickly subsides.
