Fire, no matter how big or small it is, can put your lives at risk. Whether a fire starts in your home or in your place of work, you have to do what needs to be done to prevent it. You should be ready with the right equipment to help you put out fires quickly, safely, and efficiently. What is your best line of defense? You need reliable products such as fire extinguishers to put out potentially devastating fires. At ASCO Fire, we offer portable fire extinguishers.
What are Portable Fire Extinguishers?
Portable fire extinguishers are reliable pieces of equipment that you can count on when a fire occurs in or around your property. The main purpose of this equipment is to help prevent small fires from becoming big fires. Remember that you cannot just get any type of fire extinguisher that you see around the corner. You need one (or a bunch of them) which has been properly maintained and inspected by qualified fire prevention specialists. If you are wondering how many fire extinguishers to get for your property, the answer will depend on how big your property is. The number of fire extinguishers you need depends on your industry’s unique requirements.
Take note that there are different types of fire extinguishers out there. Water fire extinguishers, for example, are those that can be used to fight fires that are caused by solid combustibles like textiles wood, and paper. Next, there is the AFFF foam which can be used in situations where preventing re-ignition is required. Another type is the CO2 fire extinguisher. This one is used on electrical fires as well as flammable liquid fire. At ASCO Fire, we sell, service, and inspect portable fire extinguishers, according to your needs.
Benefits of Installing Portable Fire Extinguishers
Keeping fire extinguishers on-site can help prevent small fires from turning into that dreaded four-alarm blaze. Expected to keep fires under control, it has been recorded that these fire protection systems have helped put fire incidents to a halt in about 80% of homes all over the country. Additionally, they have also been proven to save lives. In 2015, records from the NFPA show that there are over 3,200 deaths and 15,000 injuries resulting from property fires in the United States. With a fire extinguisher readily available, more lives will be saved in the future.
Another benefit associated with the use of portable fire extinguishers boils down to environmental protection. Imagine uncontrolled fires and how they release greenhouse gases like carbon into the atmosphere. You can prevent this occurrence with the help of a fire extinguisher. The faster you extinguish the fire, fewer harmful gases will be released into the environment.
