A fire extinguisher can make a great defensive tool. In almost all public spaces you can find a fire extinguisher and they can be kept inconspicuously in virtually any environment. Few people question the logic of having a fire extinguisher close at hand, but most people don’t think of it as a defensive tool. A fire extinguisher can be used to distract and disable an attacker, regardless of how determined they are. You can also cover a section of slick flooring with the dry chemical agent in most extinguishers to create a very slippery surface that can impede a threat’s advance and/or give you an opportunity to strike after they have fallen.
