Fire Extinguishers in Tucson, AZ
Titan Alarm has many solutions to protect your Tucson, Arizona home or business in case of a fire. To keep your family or your inventory safe, it’s best to have smoke detectors, home monitoring and other modern fire protection systems in place.
But when it comes to minimizing the damage from a fire, your first line of defense is the fire extinguisher. While you should always leave firefighting to the professionals, fast access to a high-quality fire extinguisher can prevent a small flame from turning into a deadly fire. It could even save a life.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, you should have at least one fire extinguisher on each floor of your house.
Where Should I Keep My Fire Extinguishers?
You should keep your fire extinguishers somewhere visible. It should be a place you will have easy access to in case of an emergency and where all family members know where to find them. You should keep your fire extinguishers in the rooms in your home where a fire is most likely to break out — for example, in the kitchen or laundry room.
It’s also a good idea to keep one in your master bedroom so that if you detect a fire outbreak in the middle of the night, you will have a fire extinguisher close at hand.
Choosing a Fire Extinguisher
When selecting fire extinguishers, there are two ratings you want to be aware of: the classification and number.
Class A fire extinguishers can put out traditional wood or paper fires. Class B-rated extinguishers are suitable for putting out combusting liquids like oil or gasoline. Class C extinguishers can be used on electrical fires. The number next to the classification says how effective the extinguisher is at that class. The higher the number, the better.
