Picture of a fire extinguisher actively blowing Having a fire extinguisher easily accessible is always good practice.
  1. The outside of the extinguisher is clean, and all parts are operable and not damaged or restricted.
  2. You have identified an escape, and the fire is not between you and the route.
  3. You have alerted other occupants, and someone has called the fire department.
  4. You are safe from the toxic smoke produced by the fire.
  5. The fire is contained to a single object, such as a wastebasket.
  6. Call SERVPRO of Ravenswood to clean up the damage.
