Proper Use of a Wet Chemical Fire Extinguisher

Not so long ago, a new class of fire was created – Class F. Class F refers to fires that start from cooking fat which burn at extremely high temperatures. None of the current fire extinguishers at the time were strong enough to douse or choke the flame and thus a new type of extinguisher was made just to counter it – the wet chemical fire extinguisher.

The Foam Fire Extinguisher For Your Home

When I run my business, I always make sure I have the right kinds of fire safety equipment within my vicinity. This is not just me of course – as it is now a universal legal requirement in the United Kingdom when the Fire Safety Order (2005) was implemented a few years back.

Why Everyone Needs a Carbon Monoxide Detector

In a potential fire emergency, it isn’t always the flames that spell death and tragedy. Amidst the thing we fear the most in such a situation we can imagine scenarios that depict a flaming room, suffering from the flames or even the movie-like image of jumping out of a burning building. However, reality says this isn’t the case, for besides the fire there is a silent killer – carbon monoxide.

Fire Protection For Businesses

It is quite striking to note that fire protection is a highly underrated policy here in the United Kingdom. If we take a look at the situation it is especially staggering – fires occur quite frequently in the country. Even if we are a highly educated populace, we don’t do well in terms of controlling this highly preventable disaster.

The Fire Alarm System

What fire protection method is more used, tried and tested than that good old fire alarm? An efficient system in any given area probably saves more lives per money spent in emergencies than anything else an establishment has ever spent on. It has been around for quite some time and is in principle, virtually unchanged. It is built to be heard by every human being in the premises of its area of responsibility. It is connected to the local fire station alerting them for an immediate response.

Proper Installation and Use of a Fire Alarm

A fire alarm system is a tried and tested, virtually unchanged way to excellent fire protection for any business or operation. It is indispensable since it alerts the local fire station of the ensuing fire and it also alerts everyone within the vicinity to take immediate action such as clearing the area and evacuating in a disciplined and orderly manner.

Dorgard – A Revolutionary Fire Safety Device

Quite interestingly enough, it is illegal to operate a fire door manually in the case of a fire. A fire door basically, is a door that prevents the spread of flames from room to room – and is therefore closed at when a fire does occur. But in a panic situation in which people may not be thinking rationally, some of them might make the mistake of trying to force it open (letting the fire in the room in most cases – much more dangerous). This is why I think that the relatively new fire safety device – Dorgard is quite revolutionary.

Megaphone – Make Yourself Heard During a Fire Outbreak

Yes, it is true that during a fire outbreak, the most common things that you would see are panic and chaos with people running around and screaming for help. If you were the fire marshal, the biggest challenge for you would be to pacify the people and organise them for safe evacuation. But if everyone is panicking and shouting at the top of their lungs, how would this be possible?

The Uses of a Megaphone

One may think that communication has become quite instantaneous in our age that certain “old fashioned” gear such as the megaphone would be obsolete by now. Sure we have texting and our cellphones is just simply a elbow’s reach away – not to mention we now spend a good amount of our quality time online. However, in a high octane, critical fire emergency situation nothing beats a fire marshall shouting out instructions after the ensuing fire alarm.

Closing on Call – Dorgard

Here’s the scenario: You are in a room and you notice that there is a HUGE fire and not to mention smoke spreading from the outside while a megaphone siren is sounding through the building. What do you do?

Dorgard – Your Ultimate Guide

If you would put a Dorgard next to an extinguisher, you can safely bet that more people would actually recognise the extinguisher. Although Dorgards are important pieces of fire safety devices, many people are not yet aware how vital these are when it comes to the prevention of the spread of flames.

The Importance of Fire Exit Signs

Signs are important and will continue to be important for decades to come. It provides our society with a certain amount of orderliness, especially when we perceive many of these signs to be universal. A red light means stop. A round sign that slashes out a cigarette sign means no smoking. Signs then, take care of our safety and keep us informed of certain rules in certain places.

Taking a Closer Look at Fire Extinguisher Cabinets and Honeywell Safes

When the topic fire safety is brought about, almost everybody is inclined to thinking about fire extinguishers, signs and ladders. Well this is quite logical really because these are the tools/ gadgets that help you fight fires or save your lives when there is a need.

Selecting a Fire Escape Ladder

Different types of fire safety equipment are recommended for different places and situations. In the case of a fire escape ladder, this is especially true since for many, it is one of the few ways one can leave his or her vicinity as quick and as safe as possible. Usually a good number of fire exit signs lead to these escape ladders which in turn, is usually attached to a window. I probably emphasize how essential this tool is in places that can use them – such as 2 floor homes, dormitories and small commercial areas such as my own.

Safety For Certain Industries – The Wet Chemical Fire Extinguisher

Quite recently, a new class of industrial fire was named – Class F. Whereas before fire extinguishers were made to quell Classes A-E it has risen to attention that a certain type of fire was hard to quell since it burns at extremely high temperatures. The Class F fire is the cooking oil fire – when lard, cooking fat and such is ignited most fire extinguishers will have a tough time quelling it properly. This is an ensuing problem especially for restaurants, since employees can easily get choked inside a hot, burning kitchen. This is what a wet chemical fire extinguisher is for.
