Before we get into it, let’s understand what fire is and how it starts?

There are 4 elements of fire:

Fuel, Oxygen, Heat and Chain Reaction, or Tetrahedron


In order to extinguish the fire completely, First, we need to cut the supply of any one of the elements, and then we can easily control the fire from spreading and stop ignition.


Fire is classified into different classes according to the International Standard. 


  • Class A, B C, D, E, & F.


Different classes of fire require different methods of fire control measures because

understanding the source and causes of fire is very important in order to control or extinguish it.


For example, we cannot use water for fires caused by short circuits because by doing so we may increase the risk of getting an electric shock or electrocution. Fire safety measures include those that are intended to prevent the ignition of an uncontrolled fire and those that are used to limit the development and effect of fire after it starts.
