Runaway Rant: Coronavirus on a Rampage

In a time of crisis like this (2019-nCoV), HOPE plays a big role to keep us going. BUT to put things in perspective we should avoid group-thinking and welcome critical thinking once in a while.

How Important Is A CO2 Fire Extinguisher For A Business Facility?

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) fire extinguishers extinguish fire by removing the heat and taking away the oxygen element (of the fire triangle).
