A fire extinguisher is a critical safety item to have when overlanding. The risk of fire increases when you are camping in remote areas, as the nearest fire station may be far away. An accidental fire can quickly become a disaster, especially when camping near dry vegetation or flammable materials. A fire extinguisher can help you contain and put out a small fire before it spreads and becomes unmanageable. It is also important to note that some overlanding events and competitions require participants to have a fire extinguisher as a safety requirement. When choosing a fire extinguisher, it is important to consider the size and type of fire extinguisher, as well as the proper use and maintenance of the device.
