A multi-purpose fire extinguisher is best for the home. Look for the rating to be at least 2A 10B C on the label. This extinguisher can be used on any type of fire commonly found in the home (it will often be labeled A-B-C). It is recommended that an extinguisher be installed in the kitchen and in the garage.
The Bedford Fire Department does not service or refill fire extinguishers. Research "Fire Equipment" on your phone or internet to find companies that do this.
Please contact Republic Services at 800-333-7301 to determine how to dispose of old fire extinguishers.
