Fires aren’t just stories you read about in the news. They happen every day to real people and real businesses who stand the chance of losing all they have built. To some, fire extinguishers are merely that iconic–but often dusty and old–red can that hangs on the wall with no purpose other than to look symbolically “up-to-code”. The reality is far different. Protecting your business or home from any fire starts with making sure you have the best fire extinguisher in place and that it is 100% operational. The bottom line is that Fire Extinguishers are essential safety tools that can minimize property damage and save lives.
Ninety-four percent of the time fire extinguishers are used, fires are successfully extinguished in less than two minutes.
Not only are businesses required to have, and properly maintain a fire extinguisher, a fully operational fire extinguisher can mean the difference between putting a fire out or experiencing a full property loss. It is important to know NOT every fire extinguisher offers the same quality or benefits, even if they look the same. Brand reputation, replacement parts costs, ratings and longevity of the unit are all important factors in choosing the best extinguisher for you. Proper placement and installation adds to your overall safety as well as compliance with NFPA and OSHA guidelines. Call WFX and ensure your business is properly protected in the event of a fire!
