Do You Trust Your Fire Extinguisher? Unless You’re A Fireman, You Probably Shouldn’t. (Do This Instead)
Author: Jamie F.
Quick! A fire just broke out in your home! What do you do?
If you said “reach for the fire extinguisher”… experts say you could be making a huge mistake.
Why? Because not all fires are the same… nor are fire extinguishers!
You may be surprised to learn that there are actually 5 different types of fire, and each one requires a different method to safely extinguish.
And if you use the wrong type of extinguisher, you could make the problem much worse.
For example, if you’re dealing with an electrical fire, but you use a foam-based fire extinguisher, you’ll actually spark massive flames that can quickly electrocute you — or even explode.
Or, if you’ve had a kitchen mishap and are dealing with a grease fire, and you use a water-based fire extinguisher, you’ll cause the flaming oil to splash and spread like napalm.
Or, if you use a CO2-based extinguisher in a small room — regardless of which fire you’re putting out — you could rapidly suck out all the oxygen and suffocate.
Fire extinguishers are more complicated than you might think… and the consequences can be tragic.
That means if you’re planning to put out a fire yourself, you need to know two things: First, which type of fire it is… and second, which type of extinguisher you have.
Of course, unless you have a PhD in fire extinguishers, it can be impossible to know which type you have… not to mention which type of fire you’re putting out!
And even if you do know which type of extinguisher and fire you’re dealing with, you still have to QUICKLY figure out where the extinguisher is… carry it to the fire… figure out how to pull out the pin… muster enough force to squeeze the handle… and accurately hit the base of the fire for minutes at a time without stopping.
Then, if it does work, you need to clean up the mess ASAP… because many extinguishers spray toxic materials!
For most people, this is simply asking for too much effort and expertise in a situation that threatens your life — and they wisely abandon their home at the first sign of fire.
However, fire safety experts say that doesn’t have to be the case. Thanks to a recent breakthrough in home fire safety, you can now protect yourself from ALL types of fires with a single, lightweight, easy-to-use device: the new StaySafe 5-in-1 Fire Extinguisher.
This new type of fire extinguisher uses an innovative new non-toxic firefighting fluid in a compact aerosol can. It’s been independently tested and verified to put out all 5 types of fires — Electrical, Cooking Oil, Textiles, Gas/Diesel, and Paper/Card — with just one extinguisher.
Even better, the device is compact and affordable enough to keep multiple extinguishers around the house, car, and garage — virtually guaranteeing you’ll always be ready for any type of fire emergency.
This combination of convenience, safety and affordability has made StaySafe an overnight success, with more than 250,000 people already equipping their homes with it.
What is the StaySafe 5-in-1 Fire Extinguisher?
StaySafe 5-in-1 is a compact aerosol fire extinguisher that eliminates up to five different types of fire emergencies in seconds.
Using it is incredibly simple. Simply grab the can, point at the fire, and spray. That’s it!
There’s no pin to pull out… no fire classifications to worry about… no heavy metal canister to lug around… no difficult lever to squeeze… just point and spray.
In a matter of seconds, the fire will be extinguished.
StaySafe accomplishes this amazing task using its innovative non-toxic firefighting fluid. The fluid is designed to eliminate at least one of the elements that cause fire:
- Flammable material
- Chemical reaction
The way it stops fires is different depending on the fire, but one thing is true for all fires: There’s no risk of making the fire worse, and there’s a very good chance you’ll knock the fire out without hassle.
As such, the new “best practice” in a fire emergency has become much simpler: Grab StaySafe and spray. If that doesn’t work, it’s unlikely anything else you have will, so it’s best to leave the area immediately.
At the very least, this simplicity and effectiveness make an already-stressful situation at least a little bit less difficult… and in many cases, it could save your home and family from tragedy.
Why is StaySafe a better choice than classic metal canister fire extinguishers?
StaySafe is about more than just convenience — it’s designed to be the only firefighting tool most homes, cars, schools and offices will ever need.
It’s being called “the future of fire extinguishers” because it makes a number of massive improvements to the classic metal canister fire extinguisher:
First, it’s both easier to use and more effective than those old metal canister extinguishers.
Since StaySafe tackles 5 types of fire, you don’t need to hesitate or worry about whether or not you’re using the right device.
It also works right out of the box — no training or special preparation required.
While this is indeed convenient, there’s actually more to it than that. In a real-life fire emergency, you’re likely to panic… which can cloud your judgment and make a regular fire extinguisher even more confusing and stressful to use.
But because StaySafe is so simple, you’ll actually have the confidence to use it on a fire — you won’t second-guess yourself or worry about making things worse.
Second, it’s super compact and lightweight.
StaySafe is about the size of an average water bottle and weighs even less. This has two huge benefits:
- It’s lighter and easier to carry, unlike metal canister extinguishers which can be difficult for some people to lift. As a bonus, this makes it a great companion for camping trips!
- It fits in places that metal canisters can’t, meaning you can keep them in places you otherwise would be unprotected, such as your car, garage, or kitchen cupboard.
Together, this means StaySafe is more likely to be nearby when a fire breaks out — and much easier to bring to the fire. This makes it more likely that you’ll actually use it in case of an emergency… which can’t be said for old-school extinguishers.
Third, it works significantly faster thanks to the innovative firefighting fluid.
StaySafe can eliminate small fires completely — in a matter of seconds.
This means you spend less time in danger while also reducing the amount of damage the fire causes. As a bonus, StaySafe’s non-toxic formula doesn’t use powder or foam, which means there’s much less cleanup.
Clearly, StaySafe is a huge improvement over the existing extinguishers out there… and it’s a big win for our collective peace of mind!
Every home, car, school, and office should invest in StaySafe extinguishers — it’s one less thing to worry about.
If you want to be prepared for ANY type of fire in your home, car, or office, then you have two choices:
You COULD study every type of fire extinguisher… and every type of fire… then arm your home with tons of different fire extinguishers in every room… while doing workouts to ensure you’ll be strong enough to activate the extinguisher (assuming you choose the right one and it’s close enough to grab in time).
Or, you can just get a few StaySafe 5-in-1 Fire Extinguishers, stash them around your home, and forget about it. If the worst happens, you’ll have a simple plan to follow: Spray with StaySafe, and if that doesn’t work, leave. You won’t have to worry if you’re doing the right thing. Such peace of mind in an extreme emergency can’t be overstated!
The bottom line: Even if you already have a classic fire extinguisher in your home, StaySafe can help you be better prepared for all types of fire emergencies — it’s a great replacement or addition.
And if you don’t have any sort of fire protection in your home, car, garage, or office as you read this… then you absolutely need to get yourself a few StaySafe extinguishers. They’re the most affordable and effective way to put your mind at ease when it comes to fire!
Update: StaySafe is running a limited-time “Fire Sale” — get up to 2 FREE extinguishers!
Good news! StaySafe recently received a glowing review from a popular influencer, and they’re celebrating with a secret “fire sale”:
When you order directly from StaySafe on this website, you’ll get a FREE StaySafe device when you buy 2… or 2 FREE StaySafe devices when you buy 3!
This is an especially great deal, because StaySafe works best when you have them stashed in multiple high-risk places. With this deal, you can easily (and cheaply!) protect your home, car, office, and even bring it with you on camping trips.
The only downside? All this attention has caused them to sell out regularly, so there’s a chance this deal won’t be available. If that happens, be sure to keep checking back — it will likely reopen soon!
