Choosing the Correct Fire Extinguisher Classification

Fire extinguishers are classified by the type of fire that they will extinguish. There are five different fire extinguishers classifications. If the proper fire extinguisher class is not used there is a risk that the fire will not be suppressed. All fire extinguishers have classification labels to identify the type of fire they can be used upon. Everyone should learn about the different classifications so that only the appropriate type will be selected in an actual fire emergency.
