Your occupation must also be considered to determine the right type of extinguisher is available. Maintaining all monthly and annual inspections is critical to ensuring the safety of your occupants and preventing property damage in the event of a fire.

Dry powder extinguishers are required to fight class D fires. Dry powder fire extinguishers effective extinguish fires by separating the oxygen from the fuel source which removes the heat. Extinguishers made for class D fires will be ineffective at extinguishing any other type of fire.
