Can my AngelEye fire extinguisher be stored in a horizontal position? What is the correct storage for my fire extinguisher?
Our modern fire extinguisher can be stored horizontally. The contents are pressurised, and the angle of storage will not cause the system to leak. Proper fire extinguisher storage includes using the appropriate mounting brackets, and being sure that you do not allow your fire extinguisher to freeze. Be sure to store your fire extinguisher within easy reach of areas where there is more fire danger, such as within easy reach of the kitchen cooker, or near the door of your garage.
Please explain proper fire extinguisher use. How do I use the fire extinguisher to put out a fire?
Proper fire extinguisher use is easy and straightforward. Some people believe that when used, a fire extinguisher will be difficult to handle or have a heavy “kick-back” effect. Neither is true. If you ever have to use a fire extinguisher to fight a small fire, remember the P.A.S.S. system – PULL the pin, AIM the extinguisher at the base of the fire, SQUEEZE the handle or trigger, SWEEP from side to side.
