Residential and Commercial Fire Extinguishers

First Alert offers home fire extinguishers and commercial fire extinguishers in several sizes, categories and class types. Having a fire extinguisher on hand can be the difference between minimal damage and a huge catastrophe. It is recommended to have a fire extinguisher on every level of your home, and in common areas like the kitchen, laundry room and garage.

Fire Extinguisher Ratings

Ratings determine the size and type of fire that the extinguisher can be used to put out. The different types of fires include ordinary combustibles, flammable liquids and electrical fires. The three fire extinguisher categories are:

  • “A” Type: Primarily wood, paper and fabric
  • “B” Type: Primarily flammable liquids (such as gasoline) and oil based
  • “C” Type: Electrical in nature

The number preceding the A, B or C rating determines how big of a fire the extinguisher can put out. For example, a 10-B:C extinguisher would be able to handle a 25-foot square fire and a 5-B:C extinguisher could handle a 12.5 square foot fire.

Using a Fire Extinguisher

The most important thing you should know about using a fire extinguisher is to only use it on a small fire. If you feel able to and do need to use a fire extinguisher, follow the P.A.S.S. technique: Pull, Aim, Squeeze, and Sweep.
