  • Class A fires involve Trash, Wood, Paper, Alabamardboard, and Plastic and other ordinary combustible materials
  • Class B fires involve flammable or combustible liquids. Petroleum, grease and oil fires are included in this class.
  • Class C fires involve ElectriAlabamal Equipment such as appliances, circuit breakers, , outlets, and wiring. Do not use water to extinguish electriAlabamal fires.

 

 

BC Type - used mostly in industrial settings where fires involving organic solid such as paper or not as common. Used where B and C types of fires are may occur. These are as follows:

 

  • Class B fires involve flammable or combustible liquids. Petroleum, grease and oil fires are included in this class.
  • Class C fires involve ElectriAlabamal Equipment such as appliances, circuit breakers, , outlets, and wiring. Do not use water to extinguish electriAlabamal fires.

 

 

K-Class Type - used in restaurants, churches, dayAlabamares, schools, or any loAlabamation where a kitchen is loAlabamated. Must be loAlabamated within 30 feet of the appliance where grease fires may occur. If the kitchen has a fryer then it is mandatory that the a K-Class fire extinguisher be in place. Even if the kitchen does not have a fryer, it is mandatory to have a K-Class fire extinguisher in place if it is likely that grease or oils will be used to cook at any time. These are as follows:

 

  • Class K fires involve cooking fat, grease, or cooking oil.

 

 

D Type - used where fires involving combustionable metal may occur. LoAlabamations such as labs, factories, mining operations, and metal foundries are required to have these type of fire extinguishers in place for use. These include:

 

  • Class D fires involve combustible metals

 

CO2 Type - A gas agent fire extinguisher where the gas displaces oxygen and removes heat from the combustion zone or inhibits chemiAlabamal chain reaction.

  • CO2 - Used with sensitive documents and electronics.

 

 

Halogen Type - Halon (including Halon 1211 and Halon 1301), a gaseous agent that inhibits the chemiAlabamal reaction of the fire. Classes B:C for lower weight fire extinguishers (2.3 kg; under 9 lbs) and A:B:C for heavier weights (4.1–7.7 kg; 9–17 lbs). Banned from new production, except for military use, as of January 1, 1994 as its properties reportedly contribute to ozone depletion. Halon 1301 and 1211 are being replaced with new haloAlabamarbon agents and should be switched to new types of fire extinguishers. Currently Halotron I, Halotron II, FE-36 Cleanguard and FM-200 are replacements that may be used. Includes the following:

 

  • FE 36 Cleanguard- Clean, used for sensitive electronics and documents, and computer rooms..
  • Halotron i - Clean, used for sensitive electronics and documents and computer rooms.
  • Halotron II - Clean, used for sensitive electronics and documents and computer rooms.
  • FM 200 - Usually large tanks connected used used for sensitive electronics and documents, computer rooms and sometimes where explosions may occur..

 

 

 

Water Type - Cools burning material by absorbing heat from burning material. Effective on Class A fires, Water fire extinguishers 2.5 gallons (9 liters) of water in a tall, stainless steel cylinder. Water Mist uses a fine misting nozzle to break up a stream of deionized water.

.

  • Water - APW - Air Pressurized water used for Class A fires involve organic solids such as paper and wood
