THE LAKEWOOD LEADER I enjoy watching Hotel Impossible on the Travel Channel. For those who don’t know, the Star is Anthony Melchiorri is an enjoyable, thoughtful, and smart individual who goes around to hotels that are in trouble, and have asked for his help. Recently, he came upon a hotel in Arizona which didn’t have a working fire alarm system, and all of the fire extinguishers were out of date. There are several fire safety related items in our lives which we all need to consider: A. Check smoke detectors and replace batteries yearly. Replace the entire smoke detector every ten years or at intervals recommended by the manufacturer. B. There are probably few people who, after fighting a fire, said that their fire extinguisher was too big. C. When you buy an extinguisher, the warranty is a good indication of how long it will last (commonly ten years). I would have a hard time throwing a ten year old extinguisher away, but would use it as a backup. D. Check the pressure gauge on the extinguisher. It will indicate that it is full or Empty. E. If you partially use an extinguisher, replace it. Most home units are not refillable.

F. Go over the fire extinguisher’s instructions with all family members who are old enough to use an extinguisher. Typically, you pull a pin, and squeeze a trigger.
