Fire Safety Equipment


THE TIME IS X 46:00 ON THIS TUESDAY MORNING. [ LAUGHTER ] WHAT GOOD IS A FIRE EXTINGUISHER IF IT DOESN’T WORK? CAMBI BROWN WITH WAYS TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE READY FOR THE FOURTH OF JULY. NEW HOMES HAVE A SPRINKLER SYSTEM AND OLDER HOMES DON’T HAVE THAT AND MOST DO NOT COME WITH A FIRE EXTINGUISHER. IF YOU HAVE NEVER USED ONE, YOU ARE NOT ALONE BECAUSE THEY HAVE A ONE TIME USE. THE FIRE CODE CAN HELP YOU AND RANDY WILL LIKE THIS. YOU THINK YOU CAN TEACH ME HOW TO USE THIS? HOW DIFFICULT IS THIS? YOU HAVE A STEP-BY-STEP PROCESS? OR IS AN ACRONYM, PASS. POLE, M, SQUEEZE AND SWEEP. I WILL HAVE YOU HOLD THIS. PUT IT IN YOUR RIGHT HAND. I PULL THIS OUT? DON’T SHOOT IT AT YOUR FEET. THEN I SHOOT LIKE THIS? AT THE BASE OF THE FIRE, SWEEP BACK AND FORTH. IT’S AS EASY AS THAT. IT’S NOT VISIBLE BECAUSE OF THE PIN BEING OUT? THERE IS A GAUGE ON THE FRONT. THE NEEDLE IS GONE DOWN AND IF IT’S NOT THERE, IT’S NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY. WHAT HAPPENS IS THIS LITTLE TAG, YOU WANT TO SEE THIS ON YOUR FIRE EXTINGUISHER. THAT IS CALLED THE TAMPER SEAL. IT LETS YOU KNOW IF THIS HAS BEEN MESSED WITH OR BROKEN OFF OR USED. THE FIRE CODE CAN HELP YOU? SOME PEOPLE MIGHT GET THIS HOME AND WANT TO TEST IT. IF YOU TEST IT, IT WON’T WORK AGAIN. IT IS A ONE TIME USE. WHAT DO YOU DO? WE CERTIFY THE EXTINGUISHER OR REPLACE IT IF IT NEEDS TO BE REPLACED AND WE DO IT FOR COMMERCIAL BUSINESS WITH SPRINKLERS AND ALL OF THAT. THEY EXPIRE? THEY LAST FOR ABOUT 12 YEARS BUT A BUSINESS HAS TO GET A CHECK EVERY YEAR? YES. FOR YOUR HOME, A 12-YEAR LIFESPAN. MY PARENTS HAVE ONE FROM 1990 AND THEY MIGHT NEED ONE, SOON. A BRAND-NEW EXTINGUISHER WOULD COST $56. IF YOU BRING YOUR EXTINGUISHER TO THEM, IT WILL COST $18. THAT IS A BIG SAVINGS THAN BUYING A NEW ONE. CHECK TO SEE IF YOUR HOME HAS A FIRE EXTINGUISHER. A SHOUT OUT TO MY GREAT AUNT SANDY WHO GAVE THAT TO ME AS A HOUSEWARMING GIFT. IT’S SOMETHING EVERY HOME NEEDS AND ESPECIALLY, TALKING ABOUT THE FOURTH OF JULY, THE POSSIBILITY OF SOMETHING HAPPENING. THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT THERE WHAT BE A FIRE. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE AN EXTINGUISHER. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A HOSE AND A FIRE EXTINGUISHER. THESE GUYS KNOW THEIR STUFF. IF THEY CAN TEACH ME THIS, THEY CAN HELP YOU WITH YOUR FIRE EXTINGUISHER, CLEARLY. THANKS TO AUNT SANDY. THAT WAS A GREAT GIFT AND NOW YOU ARE CONFIDENT ABOUT THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER.
