The Importance of Fire Extinguishers
Fire extinguishers are one of your first lines of defence in a fire. They play a vital role in smaller fires, helping to prevent them from escalating into a larger, uncontrollable blaze.
Fire equipment, including fire extinguishers, are designed to be your first line of defence in any fire, taking immediate action and potentially saving lives, assets, and buildings in the process. Ensuring that your fire safety equipment is functioning properly is vital. Fire extinguishers can suppress flames, providing valuable time for people to evacuate the building and for professional help to turn up.

Why Regular Fire Extinguisher Servicing Matters
Different Types of Fire Extinguishers
Fire extinguishers come in a number of different types, all with a different purpose. It is crucial to understand each type and the differences between them in order to best protect yourself in a fire.
Water Extinguishers (Class A)
Ideal for combustibles, such as wood or paper, these cool the fire, reducing its heat and stopping its spread.
CO2 Extinguishers (Class B and C)
These are effective against flammable liquids (Class B) and electrical fires (Class C), displacing the oxygen and smothering the fire.
Dry Chemical Extinguishers (Class A, B and C)
This type of extinguisher is versatile and widely used for multiple types of fire. It is designed to interrupt the chemical reactions of the fire.
Foam Extinguishers (Class A and B)
The foam creates a barrier that suppresses the vapours of the fire, ultimately cutting of its oxygen supply. Most suitable for flammable liquid (Class B) and solid (Class A) fires.
