Which Fire Extinguisher Do I Need?

ABC extinguishers

It’s important for every home to have at minimum one fire extinguisher. Which type of fire extinguisher you have depends on the type of fire you are most likely to encounter. We recommend that you have at least one for the kitchen, garage and workshop.


Things to Consider During the Monthly Safety Inspection of Your Building

Fire extinguishers
  • Does your office building electrical room have an ABC or a CO2 fire extinguisher? This is very important to know as the CO2 works the best for an electrical fire.
  • What amount of power does your building have? This will dictate the size of the C02 fire extinguisher. Call our office and we can advise you on these matters and suggest the best course of action.
  • Does your building have the right signage according to the current fire code?
  • Do you have enough extinguishers of the right type and size to ensure the safety of your building?


Fire Extinguisher Ratings


Class A: These water extinguishers are designed for ordinary flammable materials such as paper, wood, cardboard and most plastic items. These extinguishers are not suitable for grease fires.


Class B: These extinguishers are designed for flammable liquids such as gasoline, kerosene, grease and oil.


Class C: These extinguishers are designed for fires involving electrical equipment, such as appliances, wiring and outlets.


Class D: These extinguishers are used for fires in chemical labs, which may involve chemicals such as magnesium, titanium, potassium and sodium.


Class K: These extinguishers are made to deal with fires involving cooking oils, trans-fats or fats in cooking appliances.


Some fires may involve many of the aforementioned classifications, but luckily most fire extinguishers have ABC ratings to ensure they’ll work with the most common types of fires. LocksRus recommends that you have your portable ABC rated fire extinguisher checked by a professional at least once a year. We also suggest creating a monthly timeline for your own safety inspections.


How to Operate a Fire Extinguisher

1. Holding the extinguisher with the nozzle facing away from you, pull out the pin.


2. Aim the extinguisher at the base of the fire.


3. Squeeze the lever slowly.


4. Spray the entirety of the fire by sweeping from side to side.


LocksRus – Safety Tips

There are a few simple steps to take to ensure you are prepared if a fire breaks out in your home or office building.


• Select an independently tested, multi-purpose fire extinguisher that is powerful enough to put out small house fires, but not too heavy to handle easily.


• Read all instructions and become familiar with your extinguisher before it’s necessary to use it.


• If the fire spreads from a small, confined area, call the fire department immediately and ensure the building is empty.


• Have your fire extinguisher installed near an exit and keep your back to the exit as you spray in case you can’t control the fire and you must make a quick exit.


• If the fire extinguisher does not put out the fire, make an exit as soon as possible.


Smoke Detectors for Homes & Businesses

Ionization Detectors

These detectors are more responsive to flaming fires than photoelectric detectors. A small amount of radioactive material is housed between two charged plates, which causes the air to be ionized. When smoke enters the chamber, the flow of ions is disrupted and the alarm is activated. These devices need to be changed every 8 to 10 years as required by fire code to ensure the safety of your home or office. Call us today to upgrade your system and replace your smoke sensors.


Photoelectric Detectors

These detectors are primarily responsive to fires that start with a period of smouldering. The smoke enters the chamber of the detector and reflects light onto the sensor, which triggers the alarm. These devices need to be changed every 8 to 10 years as required by fire code to ensure the safety of your home or office. Call us today to upgrade your system and replace your smoke sensors.
