The importance of fire extinguisher training – fire extinguisher courses London article


The importance of fire extinguisher training and fire extinguisher courses London was highlighted after a fire outside a supermarket in Surrey Quays yesterday afternoon.

Four appliances tackled a fire after a person carelessly discarded a cigarette. Waste bin containers were set alight after the cigarette was not extinguished properly.

Trained staff could have tackled the fire (A Class A fire) with water extinguishers (the best extinguishing agent) or  foam, dry powder or wet chemical extinguishers. Most water extinguishers will put out a 13A rated fire (1.3 metres cubed), although City Fire Training recommends that persons do not tackle this size of blaze indoors. Nevertheless this outside fire could have been stopped quickly by trained personnel with access to the correct type of fire extinguishers.
