Fire Prevention and Protection

Homeowners and business owners use fire prevention and protection tactics to mitigate fire damage. Installing fire alarms, sprinkler systems and establishing evacuation plans are all part of fire protection plans. Ask questions here about fire safety.
\nnormally red, but different fires require different extinguishers which will vary in color.
There are over 360 NFPA codes and standards, which provide the basis for inspection under various circumstances. NFPA 1031 addresses the professional qualifications of those who carry out fire inspections and plans reviews. Locally enacted statutes and ordinances often adopt the Life Safety Code...
remember the acronym PASS P-pull A-aim S-Squeeze S-Sweep which means you pull out the pin, aim at the fire, squeeze the handle, and spray in a sweeping motion
stop. drop. and roll!
you can live long life by following the safety rules
The National Fire Protection Association was started by a fewinsurance agencies, so they could set certain standards in theindustry. They still set standards for some things today.
ANSWER: Its because a fire requires three things to exist. Fuel, a heat source and water. If you diminish or remove any of the three items listed, the fire dies down and goes out. Corbon dioxide mixes with and displaces the amount of water available that the fire needs to sustain itself. Its...
It is the propellant used to force water out of the extinguisher.
The average house fire burns at a temperature of 1,100 degreesfahrenheit. The temperature may vary if the fire is started byarson.
You can call ISO, which stands for Insurance Services Office. Theyhandle such things in most states as well as standardizing ofpolicies and many other items they provide to the industry. In yourstate, you need to call them and see if they have an online orpublished product for the general public....
ABC is generally a dry-chemical extinguisher and a CO2 is a compressed gas.
Some of the common causes of fire are Electrical sparks, Gas, Oily rags, lightning, Horse play, Cigarettes, Acids, friction and cooking. In order to prevent these causes of fire it is important to maintain all machines and equipment with regular checks, House keeping and general cleanliness is...
True, multipurpose dry chemical extinguishers are effective on class A, B, and C fires, not D and K
There are more than four classes of fires and an extinguisher for each class. A ABC B BC C D K Within each type there may be multiple additional sub-classes (such as A for water and A for foam). Different TYPES include: Stored-pressure, cartridge-operated, and pump-operated....
No. Fire extinguishers use a dry powder to smother the fire. Firefighters use two types of foam that can be broken down into more categories. A class "A" foam is actually a type of soap. It is used to break up water tension so that water can seep into the ground and/or fuel better. A class "B"...
1872 US Patent number 125,063, entitled "Fire Extinguisher", was issued March 26, 1872 to Thomas J. Martin. It describes a wet standpipe system for piping pressurized water into buildings for fire nozzles. It is nothing like what we now call a "portable fire extinguisher". If you know of any...
There is no fire extinguisher that forms solid CO2 ("dry ice") when activated. Some extinguishers may form water ice from water vapor in the air.
They can use one of three gases. In a foam extinguisher, it's usually compressed air which is very cheap--the price is just the electricity required to make it--and works well. They can also use carbon dioxide or nitrogen.
US Patent 125,063 issued to Thomas J. Martin, on March 26, 1872 is entitled "Fire Extinguisher", but it has NOTHING to do with what we call a portable fire extinguisher. What that patent discloses is a way to use pressurized water pipes inside buildings, supplied from the street, with valves you...
It's not illegal no, Some people use the fire door in other emergencies. Many fire doors are also in everyday use, such as those separating parts of a building into different smoke or fire compartments, or protecting stairwells. Such doors are intended to be opened as necessary to pass through. ...
They have changed our world alot . They have saved people's live many times a day and still are great for safety.
so that you don't die if your working with fire! i mean really use your head. you'd have to be a blond not to look for a fire extinguisher! (: no offense to all of the blonds out there.
Someone initially said: 1500ft. State and local fire codes may have different criteria based upon the type of occupancy and the level of hazard. For example, in an ordinary Class A hazard (paper, plastic, wood, cloth), you may need a Class 2-A or 4-A fire extinguisher within 75 feet of travel...
There are currently over 360 NFPA codes and standards for fire protection under various circumstances.
Records show that Ambrose Godfrey patented a fire extinguisher inEngland in 1723 and that George William Manby invented the "modern"extinguisher in 1818. One could also argue that a bucket full of water or sand is also a"fire extinguisher" and was invented about the time people startedliving in...
The FireStopper advantages are: 1. extinguishers are all independently Tested, Rated & Listed ABCDK instead of all other extinguishers that are either single class rated, 2-class rated or 3-class of fire effective @ ratings. 2. all are Eco-Friendly ("Green"), Non-toxic, Non-irritant & Non...
No, if it could it would be rated K as required by NFPA 10, ANSI/UL 711 or 711A.

1. install a fire alarm. 2.see to it that all the gas knobs are turned off when not in use. 3. children should be told not to play around with electronic devices. 4.keep a fire extinguisher in every wing.
Answer . The foam cuts off the oxygen supply to the fire.
Burning magnesium is usually extinguished by using a Class D dry chemical fire extinguisher.
If the solder melted sooner than the surrounding parts, the line carrying the water to the sprinkler would lose pressure, resulting in the failure of the sprinkler system to deliver water.
Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers can be used on Class B, C and E.
apparently, the answer is somehow yes. the fire extinguisher in the basement somehow exploded and the top of it where the trigger thing is went straight through the sheetrock of the ceiling!that had to be one strong strong explosion if it broke through the sheetrock. the question is: what made it...
The first fire extinguisher was patented in England in 1723 by Ambrose Godfrey. but modern fire extinguisher was invented by British Captain George William Manby in 1818.
Yes, many NFPA standards apply to single dwelling units in many jurisdictions. For example, NFPA 1 Fire Code, and NFPA 70A National Electrical Code Requirements for One-and Two-Family Dwellings may apply, among others. Life Safety Code, NFPA 101, may apply to multi-residential dwellings such as...

The portable fire extinguisher was not invented or patented in 1872. In 1813, British army captain George Manby created the first known portable fire extinguisher: a two-foot-tall copper cylinder that held 3 gallons of water and used compressed air as a propellant. One of the earliest...
There is no indication that anyone named "T.J. Marshall" invented any fire extinguisher. However, there was a US Patent 125,063 issued to Thomas J. Martin, on March 26, 1872, entitled "Fire Extinguisher". Actually it was a type of fire standpipe and sprinkler in which water pressure from a...
No, NFPA National Fire Code does not require any fire extinguishers in any one- or two- family dwellings, although there is certainly no reason not to have one or more.
There is no NFPA requirement to have a fire extinguisher in a one- or two-family residence.
NFPA 10 Standard for Portable Fire Extinguishers deals with them, among others. NFPA 1 National Fire Code tells you how many of each type of extinguisher you generally need. Other specific standards refer to specific types of hazards.
I do not think they are required, but since the food trucks have heating and cooling elements, maybe they are more likely to have fires and can be used in the case of a fire to prevent further damage to the truck until the Fire Department arrives.
Halon(R) used to be used, that did this. It is not used any more.
It will displace the oxygen in the room, thus depriving the fire of one of the three essential elements to sustain fire (fuel, heat, and oxygen). Since there a very high probability that there would be active electricity in the room, water would be a bad idea.
Loads more The liquid expands more than the glass envelope. You know this because the mechanism is designed to open the water valve to the sprinkler head when the glass envelope shatters when the liquid ruptures it as it heats up.
Fire isn't bad if it's not threatening peoples', pets' orlivestocks' lives and property: Fire is the second worst damagethat can take place in a building (flooding is topped as theworst), and a scary thing because it can kill or leave someonescarred for life. When in a natural ecosystem like a...
CO2 is delivered at the horn output at approximately -130 degrees F.
He was a black inventor whose patent was entitled "fireextinguisher," but it was what we now refer to as a "wet standpipe"and nothing like any portable fire extinguisher now in use.
Lay it down on the ground, out of the way, so people know it has been used. When the fire is out, used extinguishers can be collected and inspected for recharging or disposal.
normal fire which does not have green colored sparks coming from it otherwise it will take to whole fire extinguishers to put it out because it has 3/4 of carbon dioxide in it whilst fires with no green sparks are likely easier to put out because it has a only a 2.6/4 of carbon dioxide in it. ...
the answer to number one to four (word scramble) are... Water, Safety, Crawl, Smoke Alarms.
NFPA 704 Hazmat color codes: blue -- health hazard (4 being deadly) red -- fire hazard (4 being flash point below 73 F) yellow -- reactivity (4 may detonate) and white -- specific hazard (no water, radioactive, acid, alkali, corrosive, oxidizer) Read more: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What...
The wet standpipe invention patented in 1872 by Thomas J. Martin was called a "fire extinguisher", but was made of permanently installed pipes running up inside a building to valves with nozzles to spray the water to put out a fire. Today, "fire extinguisher" refers to a portable, self-contained...

Daniel Maseres of England invented the first fire escape.
NFPA 220: Standard on Types of Building Construction
The best location to put the fire extinguisher is inside the lab, near the door so that if the fire extinguisher is used but does not put out the fire, you can still escape via the door. Never allow the fire to come between you and a safe means of escape.
Fire consists of Heat and the stuff that burns (usually oxygen from air and a combustible material). Removing any component extinguishes the fire. Carbon Dioxide CO 2 is not flammable and pushes air (with it's highly reactive oxygen content) away, it is highly compressible and when released is very...
It used to be thought that foam blanketed burning substanecs from the air, smothering the fire, and so the side of the fire triangle removed would be "oxygen".. Recent research suggests that, whilst smothering plays a small part in foam's effectiveness, its main value is to reduce the transfer of...
There are hundreds of NFPA codes. A list can be found at the NFPA website.
Fire safety - check with a Fire Authority. Also, the types of extinguishers and their chemicals vary from country to country, maybe even state to state. Are you talking about general flammables, or flammables in the presence of electricity, for example? Big differerence: the wrong...

Class A, Class B or Class C fires. That is, ordinary combustibles, flammable liquids or electrically energized.
A controlled fire would be easier to aim at, so a candle.
The dry powder in ABC fire extinguishers is non-toxic but can cause skin irritation. You can check the manufacturer's website but this info is from the Kidde user guide for their fire extinguishers and should be accurate. The chemicals used vary by model and manufacturer but if they sprayed toxic...
The sides of the fire triangle are: Oxygen, heat and fuel. Reduceor remove any one of these and you control or extinguish the fire.
The fire codes (and building codes) that may be adopted in a particular place may vary slightly from the national codes, and there is more than one national code (not to mention numerous international codes, depending upon what country you're in). In the USA, NFPA 101 Life Safety Code determines...

There is no more important that Who use an extinguisher, but hereis so important that you extinguisher is ok or not, because fireextinguisher is very important for all. I know a site namedhalon.us which buy damaged extinguisher. I think it will help youall.
We have typical ones with CO2, Water and Powder. All with their specific type of use. CO2 removes oxygen, depriving the material burning from needed oxygen. It also cools down the area on fire but this effect is not substantial on a large fire. It does not conduct electricity. Powder is an...
No, helium is not used in fire extinguishers. We find carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) in some extinguishers, but not helium.
Anything that doesn't need an outside source of oxygen to burn, such as ammonium nitrate + fuel oil (fertiliser bomb). Realistically, i don'tknow of any. Magnesium metal burns in the presence of CO2 (undergoes what's called an oxidation-reduction reaction, the Mg is oxidized to MgO and the...
