Fire Extinguisher Safety Tips for Fort Walton Beach Residents?

A portable fire extinguisher is shown. We restore fire damage 24-hours a day in Okaloosa County.

Our local team in Fort Walton Beach has been restoring fire damage for over twenty years in Okaloosa County! Here are some tips for selecting a fire extinguisher from the National Fire Protection Association:

  • For the home, select a multi-purpose extinguisher (that can be used on all types of home fires) that is large enough to put out a small fire but not so heavy as to be difficult to handle
  • Choose a fire extinguisher that carries the label of an independent testing laboratory
  • Read the instructions that come with the fire extinguisher and become familiar with its parts and operation before a fire breaks out. Local fire departments or fire equipment distributors often offer hands-on fire extinguisher training.
  • Install fire extinguishers close to an exit and keep your back to a clear exit when you use the device so you can make an easy escape if the fire cannot be controlled. If the room fills with smoke, leave immediately.
  • Know when to go. Fire extinguishers are one element of a fire response plan, but the primary element is safe escape. Every household should have ahome fire escape plan and working smoke alarms.
