According to the Fire Industry Association (FIA) a survey has highlighted that rather than declining in importance, portable fire extinguishers have an even more vital role to play as a first aid response to fire, with 88 percent of fires that are tackled with portable fire extinguishers actually being extinguished.
This is an increase on the figure from a similar survey conducted back in 2003, which identified that in 80 percent of fires where extinguishers were employed, the fires were successfully extinguished.
Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 the responsible person must provide and maintain appropriate fire-fighting equipment.
The provision of suitable fire extinguishers is dependent on several factors including the type of fire. Fires are divided in to various classes – Class A refers to those involving carbonaceous materials such as paper and wood, Class B to fires involving flammable liquids, Class C to fires involving flammable gases, Class D to metal based fires and Class F is for fires involving cooking oils and fats.
Electrical fires are not included since they can fall into any class but there are extinguishers for use where an electrical current may be present.
Guidance on what is deemed to be an adequate provision of portable fire extinguishers is found in British Standard BS 5306 Pt.8, which covers their selection and installation and is referred to in the various Fire Guides published by the Communities and Local Government to help the responsible person.
The British Standard also provides guidance on accessibility, mounting and location of fire extinguishers, which generally should be easily available in conspicuous positions on brackets, or stands where persons following an escape route will readily see them. Some, of course, may need to be positioned close to a specific fire hazards but not so near as to be inaccessible or place the operator in undue danger in case of fire.
