Spring Cleaning Tips Begin!

One of the first things I do when Spring Cleaning time rolls around is check my smoke and CO2 alarms.  No problem; an easy switch of batteries and I was good to go.

 

This year it occured to me it had been a while since I looked at my fire extinguisher.  It looked fine - arrow is in the green portion of the dial.  However, I noticed that you could check to see if there had been any recalls on them at cpsc.gov/recalls  So I did.


And it was a good thing I did!  My extinguisher is a smaller one and has a plastic handle and tip.  Turns out those plastic handles have been known to jam and the tip is a danger for flying off and hurting people.  There had been one death reported due to problems.  So it has been recalled and needs to be replaced with a better one!  


So, long story short - check your fire extinguishers.  There would be no worse feeling than trying to put out a fire and have your extinguisher not work or injure someone.
