Fire Extinguishers – What Every Business Should Know
Most municipalities have fire safety codes for the purpose of reducing the incidence and destruction of unintended fires. Fire protection measures include particular building construction requirements, the disposal of fire hazards, proper lighting, clear pathways, the provision of appropriate fire extinguishers, and also, plans for occupant notification and escape in the event of fire. Businesses that ignore fire compliance mandates, such as the elimination of combustible materials, or the acquisition of fire extinguishers may be subject to civil penalties, and risk being deemed unsafe. Of these requirements, perhaps the most important one concerns the procurement of, and easy access to, appropriate fire extinguishers.
The vast majority of fires start small. Ready access to a materials specific fire extinguisher is often all that stands between a minor mess and wholesale devastation. Fire Extinguishers come in various “classes.” For example, Class A, extinguishers put out fires involving ordinary flammable materials such as paper, straw, and cloth. Class B Fire Extinguishers put out fires that burn flammable liquids, such as grease fires, gasoline, paint and solvents. Class C extinguishers smother electrical fires. ABC Fire Extinguishers are multiple use extinguishers that are approved for all of the above. Class D is for fires involving combustible metals, for example, magnesium. Class K is intended for commercial kitchen fires that involve cooking oils or trans-fats.
To truly be useful in the event of fire, fire extinguishers must be readily accessible and in good working order. It is equally important that the person reaching for the extinguisher have been taught how to use it. Extinguishers should be clearly visible, centrally located, and wall mounted on the provided bracket.
Don’t obscure the the extinguisher, or block its access. All portable fire extinguishers should be serviced annually by a qualified extinguisher maintenance company and new, tamper seals installed. Pressurized extinguishers require regular hydrostatic tests and maintenance which also must be performed by an extinguisher professional.
The size of the average fire doubles every sixty seconds. Therefore, timing is critical. Everyone who works within an establishement should be familiar with the fire extinguisher’s operation. Memorizing the P.A.S.S. acronym can be helpful in remembering the appropriate steps to take should a fire occur.
- Pull. Pull the pin.
- Aim. Aim the extinguisher at the base of the fire.
- Squeeze. Squeeze the trigger.
- Sweep. Move the extinguisher back and forth in a sweeping motion.
If the extinguisher exhausts and the fire is still growing, if you cannot get the extinguisher to work, or if the fire is not contained, simply evacuate the building and call 911. Fire extinguishers are meant to put out small blazes in their infancy, not fight infernos. Be aware that even after they seemingly appear to be out, some fires will reignite. Always put human safety before that of possessions.
