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!

The instructions are easy:

S: SQUEEZE and hold the trigger to discharge powder or agent.

Up until we bought this one, we had the smaller version, but I like the idea of more power. You know, just in case.
If you are one of those who doesn’t have a fire extinguisher in your home, please consider remedying that.
