Fire safety is extremely important in the workplace as well as in our every day lives. That is why it is so extremely important that each and every person should know the correct techniques and procedures for using a fire extinguisher. Using an extinguisher incorrectly can be just as dangerous as not using one at all. If you do not know, or are uncomfortable using an extinguisher it is a good idea to take part in a fire safety course. A single course could save your life.
