Commercial Fire Extinguishers

Fire Extinguishers

When you have only minutes to react, commercial fire extinguishers are your first line of defense.

Fire is a powerful force that can devastate a business in mere minutes. Fortunately, there is a tool to combat fire in its earliest stages. Fire Extinguishers are an essential part of any fire emergency preparation. According to the Fire Equipment Manufacturers’ Association, 94 percent of the time a portable fire extinguisher is used, it puts out the fire—typically within the first two minutes. OSHA also requires them, and in most jurisdictions, in the workplace.
