A survey carried out by the Fire Industry Association, in 2008, to assess the importance of portable fire extinguishers showed that where fires were fought using a portable fire extinguisher 80% were successfully extinguished, and that in 75% of the cases there was no need to call the Fire Rescue Services.
These findings highlight the significant role fire extinguishers play in the preservation of life and property. The safe use of a fire extinguisher to control a fire in its early stages can significantly reduce the risk to other people in the premises, allowing people to not only assist others at risk but also protect the vulnerable.
Portable fire extinguishers are proven to be successful in dealing with small fires and their installation could save your property whilst protecting the ongoing operations within your business.
