Segment 2 & 3 Notes

Holland Fire Marshall, Bret Groendyke, walks us through the label on a fire extinguisher, how to tell what it works best for, and how much area it will cover. Bret also remind everyone that even if you THINK the fire is out, still call the fire department to come out and have a look. Sometimes the fire can spread to the interior of a wall where we can’t see it until it’s too late.
