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.
  normally 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

The National Fire Protection Association was started by a few  insurance agencies, so they could set certain standards in the  industry. 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 similar...
It is the propellant used to force water out of the extinguisher.
You can call ISO, which stands for Insurance Services Office. They  handle such things in most states as well as standardizing of  policies and many other items they provide to the industry. In your  state, you need to call them and see if they have an online or  published product for the...
ABC is generally a dry-chemical extinguisher and a CO2 is a compressed gas.
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. Obsolete types...
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.
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. ...

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...
Records show that Ambrose Godfrey patented a fire extinguisher in  England 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...

One of the earliest extinguishers...
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.
CO2 is delivered at the horn output at approximately -130 degrees F.
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. answer...

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 CO2 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...

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 nonburnable...
No, helium is not used in fire extinguishers. We find carbon dioxide (CO2) 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 carbon ...
It can cool lava somewhat, but so does air or anything else that isat a lower temperature than the lava. It would not cool lava enoughto make noticeable difference.
The National Electrical Code® is published as NFPA 70, the NEC®, in addition to NFPA 70A for one- and two-family dwellings, NFPA 70B for Electrical Equipment Maintenance and NFPA 70E, the Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace®.
once in an yearAccording to National Fire Code and most state codes, you need to inspect any fire extinguisher in a commercial occupancy no less than monthly.  Some types may also require annual testing or maintenance.
A water-type extinguisher (Class A, or USA class ABC) is used for putting out a fire of wood, paper, cloth and other ordinary combustibles. You can also separate the fuel from the fire (remove non-burned fuel so the fire won't continue spreading). Water on wood increases the ignition temperature...
basically in DCP (dry chemical powder) fire extinguishers mono ammoniumphosphate is used. but some more chemicals compound are also used e.g. sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate, pottasium chloride etc.
