FIRE EXTINGUISHERS Last month’s VETTE GAZETTE (JAN ’14) provided information on automobile fires, and how to be prepared in case of a vehicle fire.  In support of this LRCC Safety Article the following information is provided to identify two of the latest fire extinguishers that you may consider for purchase, they are: HALON FIRE EXTINGUISHERS - This type fire extinguisher is recommended for protection of delicate, sensitive and expensive computers, electrical equipment, tapes and film, automotive and aircraft engines, laboratory chemicals and equipment.  Halon Extinguishers can also be used inbedrooms, home offices, home kitchens, cars, and garages.  This extinguisher is used for fighting class B and class C fires (and sometimes class A fires).  Halon uses a liquefied gas, pressurized with nitrogen, which discharges as a vapor causing no cold or static shock and no impairment of the operator’s vision. HALOTRON EXTINGUISHERS – This type fire extinguisher is ideal for data centers, military electronics, laboratories, warehouses, manufacturing plants, general office areas, computer rooms, control rooms, vehicles, boats, and other areas with electronic equipment.  Halotron Extinguishers can also be used in bedrooms, home offices, home kitchens, cars and garages.  This extinguisher is also used for fighting class B and class C fires (and sometimes class A fires) near electronic and data equipment. DEFINITION OF CLASS A, B, AND C FIRES Class A – Wood, Paper, cloth, trash, plastics (solids that are not metal) Class B - Flammable Liquids-Gasoline, oil, grease, acetone (also flammable gases) Class C – Electrical fires, energized electrical equipment fires (anything that’s plugged in). For further information on Fire Extinguishers, to include those above, see a complete list of Halon or Halotron Extinguishers at Amerex Fire Extinguishers.  Automobile extinguishers should be least 2.5 lbs. in size.
