How fire extinguisher works ?
Portable fire extinguishers apply an extinguishing agent that will either cool burning fuel, displace or remove oxygen, or stop the chemical reaction so a fire cannot continue to burn. When the handle of an extinguisher is compressed, agent is expelled out the nozzle. A fire extinguisher works much like a can of hair spray.
The letters (A, B, and C) represent the type(s) of fire for which the extinguisher has been approved. Although extinguishers can vary in size, color and type of extinguishing agent, all devices operate basically the same way. If the fire is small and heavy smoke is NOT present and you have an exit available to you for evacuation purposes, grab the nearest appropriate extinguisher and operate following the P-A-S-S procedure.
  • P - Pull the pin located in the extinguisher's handle.
  • A - Aim the nozzle at the base of the fire.
  • S - Squeeze the handle.
  • S - Sweep from side to side at the base of the fire until the fire is out.

Fire Extinguisher
To understand how fire extinguishers work, you need to understand a little about fire. Fire is a very rapid chemical reaction between oxygen and a combustible material, which results in the release of heat, light, flames, and smoke.
For fire to exist, the following four elements must be present at the same time:
  • Enough oxygen to sustain combustion,
  • Enough heat to raise the material to its ignition temperature,
  • Some sort of fuel or combustible material, and
  • The chemical reaction that is fire.
