Get the fire extinguisher you need to stop flames in their tracks
Household fire preparation should be one of your top priorities. Having a fire extinguisher readily available can help you put out a small fire and prevent damage or injury. Sears has a number of different fire suppression systems that will allow you to successfully fight any small fire that may occur in your home, workshop or vehicle.
When looking to purchase a fire extinguisher, you should first consider the size that you need. Should you live in an apartment and only need a small extinguisher for the kitchen, Sears has you covered. There are a number of small and easy to use extinguishers that can be mounted to the wall near your range. With an easy off cap, you can get to the fire right away. For your workshop, you'll want to pick up a larger model. These extinguishers give you more of the firefighting chemical and even have the option of a longer hose. This keeps you away from the flames but still gives you the reach you need. This is especially important if you're working with a stick welder. The sparks from this tool can go anywhere, and you need to be prepared in case they land on any flammable materials.
Another major factor in choosing your fire suppression system is what types of fires it can put out. Extinguishers are rated for ordinary combustibles (A), liquids (B) and electrical fires (C). A standard fire extinguisher is usually rated to handle all three types of fire. These are great for the home because you could potentially encounter a fire from any of the three classes. Extinguishers that can tackle all three are often dry chemical fire extinguishers. They use a number of compounds to smother the flame. There are also options available specifically for your vehicle, so you're prepared for an engine fire.. A vehicular extinguisher is rated for B and C types of fire situations. It's a great accessory to add to your mechanics tool set in case you encounter a fire during your work.
The one thing to remember when using your extinguisher is to make sure that you stay safe. If the fire is too large, get out and call the fire department. Keeping your smoke detector packed with fresh batteries will alert you in time and help keep your family safe.
Keep a full and up-to-date fire extinguisher on hand so you can tackle any small fire. Sears has the options you need to keep your family and home safe.
