The value of having fire extinguishes in the workplace
The FIA produced a report
showing how successfully
extinguishing small fires through the
use of fire extinguishers has increased from 80% in 2003 to 93% in 2021.
The percentage of fires the FRS is called to has dropped slightly from 75% to 73% in the same time frame.
The FIA are rightly advocating the
value of fire extinguishers when used
safely by persons trained in their use,
particularly when doing so mitigates
the impact of fires in commercial
premises from which, when such fires become serious, many businesses fail to recover from the impact.
