CERT Fire & Battery Tips

Important information for putting out fires
Most fires start out small and by using the correct fire extinguisher on a fire, you as a private citizen can put out most small fires and reduce extensive damages. Using the wrong coded fire extinguisher could actually increase or spread a fire instead of extinguishing it.

Prolong the life of your Flashlight Batteries
Do your flashlight battery always seem to be dead or corroded when you need to use your flashlight? If so, reverse the top battery on your flashlight while storing them. They will never corrode or turn on accidentally and ware down. When you need to use your flashlight, simply open up your flashlight up and reverse the top battery so your flashlight will make the connection it needs to work.
