As long as we’re on the subject of fireworks, let’s talk about fire. Celebrating the Fourth of July means that fire will be everywhere—in the barbecue, in candles at the table, or exploding across the night sky. Should things go awry, a small, light, easy-to-use fire extinguisher will be one of the best first-line means of defense. A class ABC extinguisher, like this Amerex one, can put out wood and paper fires, flammable liquids, and electrical fires. Don’t forget to read the instructions on how to use it before the party starts.
