Commercial and Industrial Fire Extinguishers

One of the most cost effective and most efficient items of safety equipment your facility needs to have is high quality fire extinguishers. When fire strikes in your facility, it is to late to plan for the emergency. Only with preparedness and a sound safety program will your company be ready in the event of a possible disaster.

The Effectiveness of Portable Fire Extinguishers

A survey prepared by the National Association of Fire Equipment Distributorsrecently revealed that hand operated portables extinguished over 90% of the fire incidents in commercial facilities. In most cases the fire was completely extinguished before fire department personnel arrived on the scene. And they can put out fires before the sprinkler system activates, and sprays water all over your furniture and carpets.

Training in the Use of Fire Extinguishers

Employee training in the use of fire extinguishers should be an important part of your safety program. At Act First Safety we offer Fire Extinguisher Training. The objective of the training is to inform, demonstrate and provide confidence to employees in the safe and effective use of fire extinguishers in the workplace. Studies have shown that an employee with even minimal training is able to put out significantly larger fires than those with no training.
