Saturday October 2 - Fire Extinguisher Training

fireextinguisher.png

October is Fire Safety Month. One of our very own Club members, Fire Safety Marshall Roger Lambert, has offered to help us all get experience using a fire extinguisher.


One of our Club members recently was evacuated from her owned condo for 18-24 months due to a fire that happened on the other side of the complex. A kitchen fire. Our member and all hundreds of residents lost all access to their things. All cars in the undergound were under 4' of water and write offs.

Kitchen fires can be handled with a fire extinguisher - if you have one and if you know how to use it. Another friend of mine was out of their townhouse when someone in a nearby townhouse put a cigarette out into a potted plant. Their whole unit was demolished in a resulting fire and all tenants in the complex were out of their homes.

I had a kitchen fire 10 years ago and had an old fashioned fire extinguisher and it didn't automatically work when I pressed the levers. Roger will bring a similar one to show you how to engage it. When firefighters arrived to my fire, they didn't rush in with a fire extinguisher like I'd hoped. They were slow and methodical and so much more damage to my kitchen happened, when I could have easily put it out myself.

I plead for you to go to Costco or Walmart, or Canadian Tire right now and get an extinguisher if you don't have one and learn how to use it (YouTube video). Or sign up for this event. Roger will have a demo of each type of extinguisher and everyone will get to try to use one. Attendees are limited to members only and max of 15 total, so that Roger can spend time with each one of us. This event is being held in my large back driveway. Roger will have fire extinguishers for each person to take home, however, his generous gift will depend on regulations in the type of building you live in as apartment buildings have certain requirements.

Please check our group Facebook page for a video I will post on August 25, showing how fast a fire spreads.
