Fire protection and safety is very important in both residential and commercial settings. It is important that fire extinguishers are serviced routinely by a fire safety expert that is BAFE certified. Employees should be trained in the use of fire safety equipment. Not all extinguishers can be used for every type of fire, so proper instruction is essential for maintaining the safety of all employees.
