Classes of fire
- Class A - fires involving solid materials such as wood, paper or textiles.
- Class B - fires involving flammable liquids such as petrol, diesel or oils.
- Class C - fires involving gases.
- Class D - fires involving metals.
- Class F - fires involving cooking oils such as in deep-fat fryers.
Powder extinguishers are a good multi-purpose fire extinguisher because they can be used on Class A, B and C fires. They can also be used on fires involving electrical equipment however, they do not cool the fire so it can re-ignite. Powder extinguishers can also create a loss of visibility and may create breathing problems. They are not generally recommended for use inside buildings unless there is absolutely no alternative.
Foam fire extinguishers can be used on Class A and B fires. They are most suited to extinguishing liquid fires such as petrol or diesel and are more versatile than water jet extinguishers because they can also be used on solids such as wood and paper. The foam extinguishes liquid fires by sealing the surface of the liquid, preventing flammable vapour reaching the air and starving the fire of fuel. They are not suitable for use on free flowing liquid fires.
Carbon Dioxide Extinguishers (CO2)
CO2 extinguishers are ideal for places with a lot of electrical equipment such as offices or server rooms because they are safe to use on fires involving electrical apparatus. Carbon dioxide extinguishers do not leave any residue, unlike a foam extinguisher. They can also be used on Class B fires, those involving flammable liquids such paraffin or petrol. CO2 extinguishers work by smothering the fire and cutting off the supply of air.
Water fire extinguishers have a class A rating and are suitable for fighting fires involving solid combustibles such as wood, paper and textiles. Electrical equipment should be avoided when using a water extinguisher (unless water with additive are used). as water is a conductor.
Water Mist Extinguishers
Water mist fire extinguishers are highly effective on class A, B, C, F and electrical fires. The unique design of the water mist extinguishers' supersonic nozzle creates a microscopic mist curtain, reducing the oxygen content. Water mist extinguishers are also safe on fires caused by electricity, as the water mist does not conduct electricity and the water mist does not form puddles which could lead to electrocution.
Wet Chemical Extinguishers
Wet Chemical fire extinguishers are designed specifically for use on fires involving combustible cooking media such as burning oil and fat. They have a class F rating and a special lance applicator nozzle. They usually have an additional class A rating and are normally not designed for use on class B fires (petrol, diesel, paint, paraffin etc).

A fire bucket filled with sand provides an additional safety option to fight fires in an emergency. They are often kept next to ovens, barbecues, and other areas where the potential for fires is greatest. Oil fires, including cooking oil fires are resistant to water which can often cause the fire to spread. Sand can be used to help smother most small fires in an emergency. In order to extinguish the fire, the sand in the bucket is dumped on the fire to starve it of the oxygen it needs to stay alight.
Fire buckets should preferably have a lid and be wall mounted. Locate the fire bucket in an easily accessible position, preferably together with a fire extinguisher to form a fire point.
