Fire Prevention Tools Everyone Should Have

Experiencing a fire is one of the worst things a home or business owner can experience — and for very good reason.  It only takes a few minutes for a fire to rip through a building, causing irreversible damage, which is why thoughtful preparation is key.  Having tools on hand to prevent and battle a fire might be the difference between a few days of repair vs. months of remediation.  Check out some of the fire prevention tools we’ve compiled for you below!

Fire Extinguisher

We are sure it is no surprise to you that this is number one on our list — but you’d be surprised at how many people actually don’t have even one of these in their home or business! Do you have the ones you need?  A fire extinguisher is one of the easiest tools to use and can put out a fire in minutes - if used effectively. These are typically cheap and only require an inspection annually. Make sure to keep these in your home or building, in an easily accessible place for potential future use.

Proper Extension Strips

Plugging 10 items into the same outlet can get dangerous and increase your risk for a fire. Because of this, it’s important to make sure that you’re utilizing a, properly functioning, power strip in order to reduce the possibility of a surge which can therein cause a fire.


While it might seem odd to keep a bag of sand around, it can be one of your best friends in the event of a fire. For many, using a fire extinguisher might be a difficult task, whereas using sand is extremely easy — just pour it on the fire! This is an inexpensive alternative and a very useful way to make sure you’re prepared in the event of a fire.  Think of adding this to your list of items to purchase before your next outdoor barbecue.
