Brad Rogers BRAE 129 17 May 2010 Fires are very dangerous things that can cause severe damage to property and hurt or kill people in the process. Fires can start in a number of ways and they are not all the same. People do things that cause the risk of a fire to start to go up. People also make the mistake of trying to put out a fire with the wrong type of fire extinguisher. We learned about fire safety and how to use a fire extinguisher in our last lab. Fires are something that the average American does not take very seriously because they think that it will never happen to them. The United States has more house fires and man caused fires than a lot of countries. The reason that we have such a higher chance of fire is that we do not take fires seriously and we do things that cause our chance of causing or getting a fire to go up. Our fire safety is very bad and very few of Americans are properly trained in how to deal with it.
