I don't know what a prepper is, but If you live in snow country and get cought or stopped by a blizzard, you will appreciate having a winter survival kit: a small shovel, a good pair of boots, gloves, hat, and a wool blanket. I learned this lesson many years ago when I thought I knew everything.........

Free advice on maintaining any powder based fire extinguisher. Every 6 months turn it over and tap the bottom of the cylinder several times with a rubber hammer. It will loosen up the compressed powder and allow it to mix with the propellant. If the gague does not register in the good zone, have it serviced or replaced. There, now you just serviced your own extinguisher.
