The value of having fire extinguishes in the workplace

The FIA produced a report

showing how successfully

extinguishing small fires through the

use of fire extinguishers has increased from 80% in 2003 to 93% in 2021.


The percentage of fires the FRS is called to has dropped slightly from 75% to 73% in the same time frame.


The FIA are rightly advocating the

value of fire extinguishers when used

safely by persons trained in their use,

particularly when doing so mitigates

the impact of fires in commercial

premises from which, when such fires become serious, many businesses fail to recover from the impact.
