Chuck Berg is a home inspector in Westiminster, Co. has reminded us of the value of fire extinguisher. Thank you Chuck for allowing us to share the information.
One of the most important items you can have in your home is a fire extinguisher. You would be surprised how many homes do not have one. In addition to working smoke detectors, every household should have UL listed fire extinguishers strategically placed in rooms such as the kitchen, garage and worworkshop. Don't just hang your extinguisher on the wall or in the cupboard! Plan ahead, read the instruction manual and know your extinguisher's capabilities before trying to fight a fire. I know this sound simple....but !
Using the wrong type of extinguisher on a fire can actually make it spread so it's important to plan ahead when purchasing and placing fire extinguishers.
As you may have seen from some of my post, I'm passionate about home safety.....please "keep it safe".
