When buying a fire extinguisher what should I look for?

Talk to an experienced and knowledgeable person when making your selection.  There are different types of fires and different types and sizes of fire extinguishers available.

In addition to the basic considerations of hazards, risk factors, space and the area you are protecting, you should also consider its “usability”- can you operate it? And its serviceability-can it be serviced locally?  Or is a disposable adequate?

Certainly when it comes to putting out a fire, more fighting power is good-however if you cannot lift the extinguisher to operate it-it is of little to no use.

Look for a metal headed (top) fire extinguisher; these are usually serviceable.  Purchasing a good quality fire extinguisher and keeping it maintained, should give you years of dependable service.

Does the extinguisher have a charge in it?  Your new fire extinguisher should be ready for use.  Before putting a fire extinguisher into service the NFPA-10 requires it to be tagged by an authorized person.
