Fire Extinguishers

Fire Protection for Small Fires

A fire extinguisher is an active fire protection device used to extinguish or control small fires, often in emergency situations. It is not intended for use on an out-of-control fire, such as one which has reached the ceiling, endangering the user, or otherwise requires the expertise of a fire brigade. Typically, a fire extinguisher consists of a hand-held cylindrical press pressure vessel containing an agent which can be discharged to extinguish a fire.
