Do you have fire extinguisher at home?
24 Feb 07
We are fire safety conscious but we do not have any fire extinguisher at home for most of the time, when it's not used, you'll find the same empty that when there's fire, just the same you can't use it. Our place is not a fire-hazard and hopefully, no fire will occur.

I now have 2 of them. I used to keep it in a hall closet, buy my brother recently pointed out that it should be kept by the exit door- actually one at every exit door. If it's somewhere where you have to go back into the house to get it, you could be in danger of getting blocked in by fire. When you have a fire, you should always head for the nearest exit, no matter what or how containable the fire seems. Only when you are at the exit (where the extinguisher is) can you make a judgement as to whether or not it is safe to attempt to put out the fire. This way you are sure to get out of the house. Remember, the house and its contents can be replaced; life cannot. Let the firemen be the heroes.
