The importance of fire fighting equipment and fire protection

What is the importance of fire protection?

Fire safety reduces the risk of injury and building damage that fires can cause. Developing and implementing fire safety protocols in the workplace is not only required by law but it is crucial to everyone safety that may be in the building during a fire emergency.

What is the most important factor in fire protection?

Heat is the first and most essential element that a fire needs. A fire can't even start or spread unless there's a significant amount of heat involved. That's why when a firefighter responds to a fire, they apply water or another cooling agent right away.


Here introduce some major firefighting equipment:


Fire Extinguisher

A fire extinguisher is a fire protection device used to put out or control small fires, often in emergencies. It is the primary need of any building including homes as well. Every building should have an ample number of fire extinguishers to ensure fire safety. Depending on the type of fire, different types of fire extinguishers are available in the market.


Fire Alarms

Fire alarms have the role to save lives, prevent injuries and minimize damage by alerting you to a fire as soon as smoke is sensed. It is the first and the most important component of a full-proof fire protection system. The alarm sound can be set to certain frequencies of different tones.


Fire blankets

Fire blankets are safety devices that are designed to extinguish the starting fire. The blankets help prevent the fire from spreading. The use of a blanket along with a Fire extinguisher produces good results. These nonflammable blankets are helpful in temperatures up to 900 degrees and are useful in extinguishing fires by not allowing any oxygen to the fire.


Fire Sprinklers

When the fire broke out, the fire sprinklers discharge water with constant pressure and force. This is a major component of the fire protection system that is highly effective in preventing major fires. Fire sprinklers alone can control more than 90% of fires.


Fire Hose

A fire hose has a big role in extinguishing the fire. The high-pressure hose carries water or other fire retardants to fire to oppress it. A building should have this important firefighting system. After the use, usually, the fire hose is hung to dry since the standing water inside the hose can deteriorate the material inside it.
