- Fire extinguishers can be a small but important part of the home fire safety plan, the NFPA says. They can save lives and property by putting out a small fire or suppressing it until the fire department arrives.
- Smoke alarms alert occupants to the presence of danger, but do nothing to extinguish the fire. Home fire sprinkler systems respond quickly to reduce heat, flames, and smoke from a fire, giving residents valuable time to get out safely.
