Fire Extinguisher: 101
Butler County Fire District # 3 recommends that everyone purchase, at a minimum, one fire extinguisher for their home. Fire protection experts recommend one for the kitchen, the garage, and the workshop.
There are many excellent articles discussing the use and care of fire extinguishers. We have done some research and have located a web site that does a very good job of explaining and discussing fire extinguisher use,
fire prevention and fire hazards.
Click on the link below and you will be directed to a web site named FIRE EXTINGUISHER: 101. The site
will open in a new window. You might have to allow pop-ups for our site if you are running pop-up blocking software.
As a public service to the citizens of Butler County Fire District # 3, if you discharge your fire extinguisher while fighting a fire in your home and we respond to that fire, we will refill*
your fire extinguisher free of charge.
* Must be a refillable fire extinguisher. Disposable one-time use extinguishers cannot be refilled.
