January 20, 2005
CLEVELANDÃ¢â‚¬â€In response to a number of high-profile blazes, the Fire Equipment ManufacturersÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Association produced a video that covers proper use and installation of fire extinguishers.
FEMA developed the video to cover issues such as portable fire extinguishers, codes and standards, focusing on extinguisher use in assembly halls and public meeting places.
The CD-ROM, titled Ã¢â‚¬ËœYour first defense when disaster strikes,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ runs 10-minutes long. It is available through the groupÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s web site.
FEMA is an industry association comprised of fire equipment manufacturers that provide portable fire extinguishers, interior equipment, fire hose and pre-engineered suppression systems.
