Firefighting, activity directed at limiting the spread of fire and extinguishing it, particularly as performed by members of organizations (fire services or fire departments) trained for the purpose. When it is possible, firefighters rescue persons endangered by the fire, if . 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, endangers the user (i.e., no escape route, smoke, explosion hazard, etc.), or otherwise requires the expertise of a fire brigade.

Approximately fire control and fire extinguishment tests were run on free-burning liquefied petroleum gases (LPG) pool fires from 25 ft/sup 2/ to ft/sup 2/ in area. The LPG was contained in concrete pits, and the pit floors were allowed to cool before the fires were ignited so that the burning rates were not influenced by boiloff from the warm floor.

Environmental and. In general, there are three primary methods that can be used to apply water for cooling or extinguishment to LPG vessels exposed to fire.

The three methods are: water deluge, fixed Control and extinguishment of LPG fires book, and water spray. Additionally, portable equipment such as ground and trailer mounted Control and extinguishment of LPG fires book can be utilized.

Arson, highly flammable liquids and LPG, and fire insurance are also discussed. This handbook has 13 chapters and begins with an introduction to the Fire Triangle, an elegantly simple way of illustrating the three prerequisites for a blaze—heat, fuel, and oxygen—in the context of fire prevention and fire extinguishment.

These elements may be compared to the three legs of a triangle (fig. 1), for fire cannot occur until all three are brought together.

Figure 1. - Fire triangle The following is a common cause of fires in terms of the fire triangle. Once a control line is established, firefighters may set a controlled blaze downwind of the main fire, just on the inside of the control line.

A vehicle fueled by CNG or LPG is fully involved in fire. From a doorway, a crew directs a hose stream at the ceiling of a burning room. When water is converted to steam, it expands to ________ times the volume of an equivalent amount of liquid water.

To test the fire and explosion resistance of new plutonium metallurgy gloveboxes and to obtain information pertinent to fire control, fire and explosion tests were conducted in one of the gloveboxes. It was found that over l0% oxygen is required for non-metal, and that over 5% oxygen is required for freely burning metal fires.

Data for estimating the burning rate and heat output of large pool fires (diameter ≳ m) are compiled and computational equations presented.

Since a large scatter in the reported data is noted, attention is also focused on areas where further research is most needed in order to improve by: Fire prevention and control. Written By: Fire prevention and control, the prevention, detection, and extinguishment of fires, including such secondary activities as research into the causes of fire, education of the public about fire hazards, and the maintenance and improvement of fire-fighting equipment.
