Every imageSecond Counts When a Fire Starts!


You’ve seen those fire extinguishers in your office space.

You may have even purchased one or more for your home.

However, do you really know when and how to use one?


Thanks to the Fire Equipment Manufacturers’ Association, a new YouTube video is now available to show both workers and homeowners how to properly use a portable fire extinguisher. The two minute video teaches users the steps required to effectively extinguish a fire. It also includes a brief outline of the types of fires that can be controlled with an extinguisher and a checklist of other immediate actions to take in the event of a fire.

With the Association’s permission, here is a link to that video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLjoWjCrDqg

Please watch it and encourage your coworkers and loved ones to do the same. Fires can be devastating make your seconds count.
