Hose reels and Fire extinguishers are the first line of defence in any situation.  If they get used in the right manner, it would significantly diminish the damage activated by a fire. We at firemint would recommend the installation of fire hose reels or fire extinguishers in most of the commercial, industrial and public buildings as these can get used by the occupants as a foremost response to a tiny developing fire.

How to Use Fire Extinguishers?

  • Make sure you have the correct type of extinguisher.
  • Ensure that you have a clear egress between the nearest exit door and you.
  • Pull the pin and test the extinguisher before you approach the fire.
  • Aim the extinguisher at the bottom of the fire.
  • Squash the operating handle to use the extinguisher
  • Sweep the extinguisher from side to side to cover the whole base of fire
