Fire Extinguishers & Equipment FAQs

Is it necessary to have your own fire extinguisher when exhibiting at a show?

Some shows may request that you have your own fire extinguisher for your stand at a show. This request is dependent on the risk assessment that will have been carried out for each individual event by the organisers. If you are required to take your own extinguisher a water mist extinguisher covers most fire hazards and does not leave any residue to clean up afterwards.
