How to use a fire extinguisher

The Office of the Fire Commissioner (OFC) reminds all Manitobans to check the fire extinguishers in their homes, offices and vehicles following a recall of two specific fire extinguishers manufactured under the Kidde and Garrison brand names.

Some of the recalled models have been on the market for more than four decades.

As a result of this recall, Cranbrook Fire & Emergency Services (CFES) wants to ensure local residents and businesses are aware of the recall, and which fire extinguishers are involved.

The recall covers 134 models of push-button and plastic-handle extinguishers made from 1973 through August 15 of this year. In addition, the nozzle can detach with enough force to pose an impact hazard. The recall includes models that were previously recalled in March 2009 and February 2015. So if you're in the market for a new fire extinguisher, Consumer Reports says you should take this chance to familiarize yourself with it, and how to use it.

After a recent recall of fire extinguishers around the USA, a local fire department explains the importance of having and maintaining the safety product in your household. The recall also includes eight models of "Pindicator" plastic push-button fire extinguishers manufactured between August 11, 1995, and September 22, 2017. When checking to make sure your extinguisher is properly working, look at the gauge. They were sold at Menards, Montgomery Ward, Sears, Home Depot, Wal-Mart and other home and hardware stores, as well as on Amazon.com, ShopKidde.com and other online retailers.
