Health Tip: Keeping Fire Extinguishers at Home

Suggestions for where to store them

(HealthDay News) -- Smoke detectors aren't the only devices that should be kept throughout the home in the event of a fire.

Fire extinguishers are equally important. The National Safety Council offers these suggestions for where to keep them:

  • Keep an extinguisher that can handle both grease and electrical fires in your kitchen.
  • Place another extinguisher next to your furnace, and one in your garage.
  • Keep additional extinguishers at other places where a fire could start.
  • Make sure everyone in the home who is physically able knows how to work an extinguisher.
