Shopping for Fire Extinguishers

Every January, business owners in here and I guess in most places in the Philippines will be very busy renewing their business permits. One of the requirements is the signature of the Municipal Fire Marshall.

Of course the Fire Marshall will not just sign your papers, they will check your building and all the necessary requirements including the right pieces of fire extinguishers and fire exits that are needed. Some big building are required to put a fire hose. And because I own a little business, I needed to have fire extinguishers and I have been shopping in some stores in the city. It is quite hard to compare prices because we only have one store in the City. My uncle is looking for fire hoses for his 5 story building and I told him that he can check out that fire hose from RawhideFirehose.comĀ  before buying from other stores.

Moreover, if you have Fire Extinguishers, you need to shake it once in awhile because if you will not shake it there is a tendency that the chemical inside it will not be as effective as it is when it was bought.
