Fires and fire damage are tragedies among renters and homeowners. But, there are ways to lessen the damage. SERVPRO® of Coffee, Franklin, Warren County is Here to Help so fires don't ruin your winter. One is having a proper fire extinguisher- especially, during the winter months. Make sure you follow these rules from our friends at the American Red Cross when it comes to having a good extinguisher:

*Always have more than one working extinguisher in your home.
*Install extinguishers high on the wall and away from any heat sources.
*If an extinguisher doesn’t work on a fire immediately, drop it and get out. Most portable extinguishers empty in 8 seconds.
*Make sure the gauge on your extinguisher is properly charged.
*Once you have the right fire extinguisher, always remember PASS:

P- Pull the pin and hold the extinguisher with the nozzle pointing away from you.

A- Aim low. Point the extinguisher at the base of the fire.

S- Squeeze the lever slowly and evenly

S- Sweep the nozzle from side to side.

We hope these tips and tricks keep fires and fire damage from your homes. But, if you have fire damage and need SERVPRO, we are always Here to Help. Call SERVPRO® of Coffee, Franklin, Warren County at (931) 723-8088.
