When it comes to fire extinguishers and commercial fire prevention, everyone knows that it is paramount to have a fire extinguisher, and everyone want to maintain a safe work environment, but few know all of the ins and outs of fire extinguishers. Here are some helpful pieces of knowledge to make sure you choose the right fire extinguishers for your commercial fire prevention needs.  

1.There Are Different Types Of Extinguishers For Different Types Of Fires

There are numerous types of fire extinguishers to meet different commercial fire prevention needs. The needs of an IT business will be different from a commercial kitchen, or a clothing shop, when it comes to putting out fires. Makes sure you have the right kind of fire extinguishers to meet your safety needs, as using the wrong type of extinguisher on the wrong type of fire can make the damage even worse.

2. When Using A Fire Extinguisher, Remember To PASS  

If you are not a fire fighting pro, keeping this acronym in mind will have ready to use fire extinguishers properly in case of any fire-related emergency.

-Pull the pin. Hold the extinguisher with the nozzle pointing away from you and toward the fire. Release the locking mechanism.

-Aim low when you hold the nozzle toward the fire. Point it at the base of the fire.

-Squeeze the lever slowly and evenly.

-Sweep the nozzle from one side to the other to put out the fire.

3. Fire Extinguishers Require Monthly Inspection By A Licensed Fire Protection Company  

Fire extinguishers cannot enable commercial fire prevention when they are old, out of date, or do not work. It is better to discover this early on, than be surprised in the heat of the moment when you find yourself needing to use it.  This is also an NFPA requirement, which involves a monthly 12 point check.

Place flags for boys who have died;
Kneel down and say prayers for your loved ones,
But know they're still by your side!"
