On top of this, did you know that 67% of the firefighters responding to fires in the U.S. are volunteers? That’s right. According to the NFPA, 67% of the fire fighters in the U.S. are people who volunteer to fight fires in their communities. This means there’s a very good chance that if your building catches on fire, the people coming to your aid will people who have volunteered to leave their own jobs and family events to provide help.
This is why it’s so important to give fire departments a helping hand by selecting the right kind of fire extinguishers for your organization.
