Roberts & Sons sells and services fire extinguishers in Stockport. We have been doing so since 1907. Our products and services are not limited to fire extinguishers. In fact, we sell other fire protection products like alarms, detectors, fire blankets, hoses and service for all products. Our company offers training in the use of fire protection equipment and fire prevention. Emergency escape devices such as inflatable escape chutes and life rafts for the marine and aviation industry are available from our store. However, we think the first line of defence is often the fire extinguisher. It’s a life and property saving device designed to be effective, affordable and readily available in an emergency. Everyone can and should know where the fire extinguisher is and how to use it.
The fire extinguisher should have a place of prominence in your home or office. In Stockport, fire extinguishers really are prominent in most homes and offices. They are seen aboard planes, boats and many motorists have one in their car. Fire extinguishers are so common they blend into their surroundings and your family or office staff doesn’t see them. They’re like the crack in the wall that’s been there forever and nobody sees anymore. If a fire breaks out, you might have to stop and think about where the fire extinguisher is. Needless to say, nobody at your house or office has given the fire extinguisher enough thought to find out if it still works. The good news is you obviously have been free of fire emergencies for a long time.
We would like to recommend that fire extinguishers in Stockport homes and offices be checked annually. You’re not going to remember to do that so rather than tempt fate, mark it on the calendar. On that date, everybody gather around. Verbally run through the steps of operation. Consider if your home or office would be safer with an additional fire extinguisher. Maybe one in the basement would be a good idea or the garage. Contact H. Roberts & Son and let us test your fire extinguisher to make sure it’s filled and operational. This one fire prevention device extinguishes millions of fires each year before they grow large, threatening life and property. Do you know where your fire extinguisher is and how long it’s been hanging there?
