Fire extinguishers (portable aerosol)

Portable aerosol fire extinguisher

A portable aerosol fire extinguisher releases chemicals from a spray can in a rapid stream to extinguish a small fire. The fire extinguisher is usually hand-held, typically red in colour and non-rechargeable, allowing for once-only use before discarding.

Serious burns can occur if the aerosol fire extinguisher fails to operate or perform satisfactorily when there is a fire.
