Fire Extinguisher Purchase Tips for Pleasant Hill Residents?

A close-up of a fire extinguisher is shown sitting in front of an outdoor barbeque. We are on call 24-hours a day to respond to fire damage emergencies in Lane County.

Our Springfield and East Lane County have been restoring fire damage for residents in Pleasant Hill for many years. Owning a fire extinguisher and knowing how to operate it can minimize fire damage and save lives in many cases. The National Fire Protection Association offers these tips for selecting and using a fire extinguisher:

  • For the home, select a multi-purpose extinguisher (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 trainings.
  • 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.
