Home Safety: An Easier, Better, Cheaper Fire Extinguisher

The Mountain Life Team Blogger April 20, 2009

Sure, you’ve got a fire extinguisher at home, but if you ever had a fire, would you know what to do with it?

Like any tool, reading the directions can only get you so far.  If you’ve never “pulled the pin” and discharged a fire extinguisher before, fighting an actual fire can be a frightening intiation.

For non-firefighters, there’s an alternative. It’s an aerosol spray from the First Alert company called the Tundra Fire Extinguishing Spray and it’s billed as an intuitive fire safety product.

According to a First Alert product fact sheet, aside from its ease-of-use, the Tundra product boasts several advantages over traditional fire extinguishers:

  1. Tundra sprays for 32 seconds — double a traditional fire extinguisher
  2. Tundra spray covers 3 times more surface area than a traditional extinguisher
  3. Tundra cleans up with a damp sponge

The Tundra Fire Extinguishing Spray is recommended for cooking fires, electrical fires and household fires involving wood, paper and fabrics.  You can buy it at most hardware stores or for cheap at Amazon.com.

If you have a Second Home or Cabin in the North Georgia Mountains, this would be a great product to pick up and keep handy, especially if you have your Mountain Home in a Rental Program.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and make it a GREAT day!

  1. There are many fire safety products out there, to help when a fire occurs. A product that is relatively new to the market, is a fire-prevention outlet, which is able to detect abnormal heat with it’s multiple sensors. Once these sensors detect such heat, the outlet will be shut off, and an indicator pin will pop out from the device. Having something like this in your home, in my opinion, is necessary. The amount of deaths that occur each year as a result of home fires is more than the deaths from all natural disasters combined. If everyone had fire-prevention outlets installed in their house, the amount of people that die due to fires in homes would be significantly lower.
