Maximum tolerable Period of Disruption
There are five different classes of fire and these are classified according to the combustible material being burnt.
There is no such thing as an electrical fire: the fire will be one of the five classes which included electrical equipment.
Classification of fires
It is vitally important that the right extinguisher is used on the right sort of fire or the consequences can be very severe. Imagine using a water extinguisher on a piece of electrical equipment?!

Under the European Standard (EN 3) the whole body of the extinguisher must be red although a small coloured area, 5%, is permitted to show what the extinguishing medium is.

Modern types of Water extinguishers are now discharged in ‘droplet’ form. This is so if the water hits electrical equipment the chances of an electrical shock occurring by the charge going back up the jet of water and harming the person using the equipment is greatly reduced.
Types of fire extinguishers
Dry powder extinguishers can cause residual damage in offices. The particles get in to computers and electrical equipment and can seriously damage them internally.

When using a CO2 extinguisher DO NOT hold the ‘horn’ of the extinguisher. When discharged this becomes very cold and cause skin to stick to it causing ‘freezer burn’.

Halon is now being replaced with environmentally safer alternatives. Previously used predominantly in computer server rooms.

Fire blankets are used to smother a fire, eliminating the oxygen supply.
The unexpected can and does happen.....
