Protecting your home from fires

Keeping your home and your family safe from fires could be as simple as making sure you have a working extinguisher in your home.  Approximately 75 percent of Americans have a fire extinguisher in their home just in case a blaze breaks out at unexpected time. Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department Fire Chief Curt Vanderite reccommends they are placed throughout the house especially near the exits. He reminds residents that just because you have an extinguisher does not mean you should be fighting fires.

Vandertie reccommends taking  a look at your fire extinguishers when you check the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. He also advises fire extinguishers be maintained on a regular basis by professional companies experienced with services like inspections and recharges.
