A fire is one of the worst things that can happen on a boat. West Marine stocks multiple types of fixed fire extinguishers and portable fire extinguishers. Handheld fire extinguishers should be secured on your boat in a well-known, easy-to-access location, preferably in the engine room or other locations where fires are most likely to start. They come in B-I fire extinguishers, B-II fire extinguishers and USCG/DOT approved fire extinguishers for different types of fires. Fixed fire extinguishers are mounted to the wall and work automatically with a manual backup. Electrical automatic engine shutdown systems are excellent fire suppression systems. They will automatically shut down engines, generators, blowers and other connected equipment to put out the fire and keep you and your crew safe before you even know a fire has started. West Marine is your source for reliable marine safety gear and fire extinguishers.
