Causes of FIRE

The Fire Triangle is a fundamental concept in fire safety. It illustrates the three essential elements necessary for a fire to ignite and sustain itself: heat, fuel, and oxygen. Removing any one of these elements can help prevent and extinguish fires.

Fire Safety Tip: By understanding the Fire Triangle, you can take important steps to prevent fires. Ensure proper storage of flammable materials, maintain your fire extinguishers, and know how to use them. In case of a fire, remember that cutting off the oxygen supply by smothering the flames or using a fire extinguisher can be crucial for safety.



How to use a Fire Extinguisher?

Remember the acronym PASS for easy recall:

  • Pull the Pin: This pin is a safety mechanism to prevent accidental discharge.

  • Aim the Nozzle: Point the nozzle or hose at the base of the fire.

  • Squeeze the Handle: Maintain a firm grip, and use short bursts rather than a continuous stream to conserve the extinguishing agent.

  • Sweep from Side to Side: While continuing to aim at the base of the fire, sweep the nozzle or hose from side to side. This sweeping motion helps ensure that the fire is fully extinguished.
