Fire Extinguishers

Baltimore County firefighters do not recommend that untrained citizens use fire extinguishers to attempt to put out home fires.

If a fire occurs, get everyone out of the home immediately and call 911. Once you are outside, do not return for any reason -- even to rescue someone. Without the proper equipment, braving smoke, fire and heat can have fatal consequences. Leave firefighting to the experts.
