Portable Fire Extinguishers

Statistics suggest that portable fire extinguishers, when properly used, are effective for extinguishing fires over 95% of the time. With the correct training, fire extinguishers are quite easy to use and very effective, making them your invaluable first line of defense when confronted with a fire-related incident. Being able to prevent a small, localized fire incident from becoming a catastrophic, life-threatening emergency that endangers your employees or occupants is invaluable. It also prevents costly downtime and loss from property damage that result from fire disasters that could have been easily prevented. It is of the utmost importance to use the correct type and size of extinguisher for different hazards.
