Fast Facts About Fire

 

Extinguisher Types

FireExtinguisher

Everybody has seen fire extinguishers. Many people have them in their car, at home or at work. But not everyone understands them or knows how to work them.

Quartzsite Fire District would like for you to have a working knowledge of fire extinguishers. It could save your life or those whom you love.

Fire extinguishers are not designed to fight a large or spreading fire.
Even against small fires, they are useful only under the right conditions.

An extinguisher must be large enough for the fire at hand. It must be available and in working order, fully charged. The operator should be familiar with the extinguisher so it won't be necessary to read directions during an emergency.

Remember that extinguishers need care and must be recharged after every use.

IF YOU ARE UNSURE ABOUT THE EXTINGUISHER
and how it should be used, serviced and inspected ASK US !!!!.

ALSO REMEMBER
A partially used unit might as well be empty.

You may need more than one extinguisher in your home. For example, you may want an extinguisher in the kitchen as well as one in the garage or workshop. Each extinguisher should be installed in plain view near an escape route and away from potential fire hazards such as heating appliances.
