A person is seen using a fire extinguisher to put out a fire. We respond to fire damage emergencies 24-hours a day in St. Louis County. County.

SERVPRO® of Aitkin, Carlton & West St. Louis Counties responds to fire damage emergencies throughout the year in Floodwood. Here are some safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association for using portable fire extinguishers:

Safety Tips

  • For the home, select a multi-purpose extinguisher (can be used on all types of home fires) that is large enough to put out a small fire, but not so heavy as to be difficult to handle
  • Choose a fire extinguisher that carries the label of an independent testing laboratory
  • Read the instructions that come with the fire extinguisher and become familiar with its parts and operation before a fire breaks out. Local fire departments or fire equipment distributors often offer hands-on fire extinguisher training.
  • Install fire extinguishers close to an exit and keep your back to a clear exit when you use the device so you can make an easy escape if the fire cannot be controlled. If the room fills with smoke, leave immediately.
  • Know when to go. Fire extinguishers are one element of a fire response plan, but the primary element is safe escape. Every household should have a home fire escape plan and working smoke alarms.
