Here at SERVPRO of North Clay County/Oakleaf/Middleburg we like to keep our local community as informed as possible.
The best way to choose what type of Fire Extinguisher is to first know what type of fire you are dealing with.

A is the common household extinguisher
B is used to combat grease and gasoline fires
C is used with electrical equipment
D is used on flammable metals
