Portable fire extinguishers are designed to put out or control small fires. A small fire, if not checked immediately, will soon spread out of control. It is important, therefore, that all homes and businesses be equipped with the proper fire extinguishers as part of a comprehensive fire protection plan. The Charleston Fire Department is dedicated to preserving our historic communities by preventing catastrophic fires. You can contribute to our Preservation though Prevention by completing the Charleston Fire Marshal Division's Portable Fire Extinguisher Training.
