IFEDA Supports Major Study on use of Portable Fire Extinguishers

IFEDA press release – Evaluation of the Role of Portable Fire Extinguishers March 2021

E.g. The FRS response time to dwelling fires has increased by nearly 50% over the past 25 years. As the FRS does not routinely provide any support or intervention until their arrival, the reduction in fire size, etc. must be attributable to other factors, including the role of the public.

Why would you not have portable extinguishers to help aid evacuation along an escape reoute?
