This is HEMI's Poll..
Posted, always have one handy. Recouping from burns isn't fun.
For those of you who don't know it....
The Hot Rod Magazine Special was Burned in a fire and was rebuilt to become that car...it was a NASTY thing... and a scary thing... the fire wasn't huge... but it was persistent as hell... and just wouldn't go away... freaking thing re-ignited a bunch....
I finally got the fiberglass hood off the car and out of the shop... and let it burn...
Two fire extinguishers and a garden hose...
My fire extinguisher ususlly gets emptied putting our somebody elses fire. I'll probably get stuck with an empty one when something of mine catches on fire. I try like hell to prevent fires.
One in the shop, but I should get a BIG one. Eventually, the Camaro will need a Firefox system.
Some but not enough.
One in the kitchen and one in the garage at all times.
never needed on but i guess i should get one never really gave it m uch thought. i always try to take mellows to the trck just in case i know its messed up but it happens. when something catches on fire i usually stand the and watch while someone else tries to put it out.
I wonder how long they last, the 3 I have in the garage are getting old, same with the one in the kitchen and the old (too small) halon one in the 55 is starting to read low on the gage.
I heard that the dry type might get clumpy and not work after several years?
At the EPA, they had a company come in once a year to check them all (there were HUNDREDS). I know they weighed them, and also performed other inspections, but I don't know the details. Might be worth finding your local fire safety shop and take them in for a check.
Hope you never need 'em
