First Alert Heavy Duty Fire Extinguisher

Let’s talk fire safety, shall we? WE SHALL!

Years ago, when we bought our first house, my FIL gifted us with a fire extinguisher for the kitchen.  I had never owned a fire extinguisher before and I found that it put me at ease knowing I had a way to fight a a fire if needed.  We put it in an easy to reach place and never had to use it, but we knew it was there, ready at a moment’s notice.

For me, it seems like a normal thing to have, kinda like a fire alarm system or a carbon monoxide alarm.

I know many folks don’t have a fire extinguisher in their homes, but I’d like to change that (Totally not trying to sell you anything here, even though I am including an affiliate link.  I don’t care where you get yours, just go get one!), so here’s a review on the very fire extinguisher we have and the one we gifted Boy and Girl.  Gotta keep the safety gene of my FIL alive!

  1. As Someone that’s sets their stove on fire at least once a month maybe I need to invest in this!

  2. That reminds me… I need to check the expiration date on the one in the kitchen… its been there for AGES… so I’m not sure if it needs to be replaced or not. Thanks for the reminder.

  3. Good advice…I need to check the expiration date on mine.
