Smoke Detectors

Smoke detectors are CRUCIAL to your safety. Most fires occur at night while people are sleeping. Toxic gases from a fire can numb your senses, disorient you, and kill you. Buy and carefully maintain a quality smoke detector. Don't wait until it's too late!

Fire Extinguishers

Extinguishers come in a variety of sizes and modules. Look for one that has been approved, tested, and labeled by Factory Mutual Research or Underwriters Laboratories. They are labeled by class according to the type of fire they extinguish:

Class A: Ordinary Combustibles

Class B: Flammable Liquids (Grease, Oil, Fat, Gasoline, Oil Paints, and Paint Thinner)

Class C: Electrical Equipment (appliances, motors, power tools)
