Your home’s fire extinguishers should never be treated as an afterthought. Northland Fire is the go-to source for all of your fire protection equipment. Not only do we offer new fire extinguishers, fire alarms, and sprinkler systems to homeowners, we also have an extensive line of products designed for commercial facilities. There are many reasons why every home should have an operational and adequate fire extinguisher. In fact, this is one of the best preventive actions you can take to protect your family and your home.

Fire extinguishers are a wise investment and have considerable shelf lives. In a perfect world, you will never experience an emergency that requires a fire extinguisher, but the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have it is immeasurable. It isn’t something you replace every month; in fact, today’s fire extinguishers are good for ten or more years.

Modern fire extinguishers are made with chemicals that put the fire out but won’t damage or destroy other electrical appliances in your home or commercial property. Many people envision a fire extinguisher’s coverage is wide enough to take out the family computer, the microwave, television or other electrical appliances. That’s not always the case.

A fire extinguisher does not command a large storage space. Their compact designs make them a good fit near the areas where fires typically break out, such as near your stove.

You change the batteries in your smoke alarms on a regular basis, and you’ve created an escape plan with your family so that everyone can get out should a fire break out in your home. Isn’t a fire extinguisher just one more important aspect of your family’s protection plan? We invite you to reach out to Northland Fire to install and repair fire protection equipment in your home or office.
