Heaven forbid that you will ever be subject to a fire in your Romahome, but when you grab the fire extinguisher, can you be sure that it will work ?
A letter in the `Camping and Caravanning Club’ magazine, draws our attention to the fact that the powder filled extinguishers need a little gentle maintenance to ensure that they will work if ever called upon in an emergency.
Powder settles, and compacts.
Take a few moments to take the extinguisher, turn it upside down, and give it a good shake. Then another, and another.
Then put it back, and relax for another few months.
Don’t have a fire extinguisher in your Romahome ? It could well be worth the investment. Oh, you have a fire blanket ? Don’t just rely on that. Your Romahome has electrical wiring and gas fitting etc., so have `belt and braces’.
It’s also good idea to have an appliance in the cab too. Your never know when someone else needs help. Be a good boy scout – BE PREPARED.
