Fire Extinguisher Importance in your Home or Business
Office buildings need specific fire safety equipment to keep both employees and clients safe. This includes smoke detectors, sprinklers, fire alarms, and extinguishers.
The first step in fire damage restoration is to put out the fire using the proper tools. A first responder may use an approved portable fire extinguisher to prevent a small fire from growing and causing further damage.
The National Fire Protection Agency publishes a series of standards and requirements for portable fire extinguishers called NFPA 10, available here.
No matter what the size of the fire, your first priority should be to get everyone out safely and call 911. Once the fire has been put out, you can call SERVPRO of Oak Lawn (708) 239-1444 to assist with the fire damage restoration.
