With the risk a fire can pose, it is paramount that you have the right tools in case a fire breaks out. You’ll also need a complete understanding of fire equipment and how to use them, and our FAQs below should be able to help.
We offer a range of fire extinguishers, the difference between them usually being the mechanism they use to extinguish a fire – whether it is water, foam, dry powder, carbon dioxide, or wet chemical. Each of these specialises in nullifying certain types of fire, so we stock them all – and it is vital to select one based on what type of fire you think would be most likely to emerge in your home.
Kitchen fires involving oil require the wet chemical extinguisher, electrical fires need the intervention of dry powder or carbon dioxide extinguishers; the dry powder is also used to suppress flammable gas fires. On top of this, flammable liquids can be dealt with using foam, dry powder, or carbon dioxide – while wood or paper fires can be put out by any other than carbon dioxide extinguishers.
To a degree, this depends on the manufacturer, but all good fire extinguishers (including our own) last for at least ten years – this can be extended with proper maintenance. The extinguisher’s manufacturing date should be visible on the unit, either on the neck, near the base, or the middle of its body. However, if your extinguisher seems to be damaged in any way (even just slightly), it would be a good idea to get it serviced.
As mentioned above, you should service your extinguisher whenever you notice an issue, even if it seems minor. Otherwise, it should be serviced every six months – that may be more frequent than you expected, but failing to notice a fault could spell doom. A pressure test every 3-5 years is also recommended.
At least one type of fire extinguisher is vital – though you should have several types in good supply to cover all bases, and even fire suppression systems could be useful. Alarms and emergency lighting will be necessary for a potential evacuation. In addition, fire blankets are recommended for their ability to smother fires, and medical kits can assist with any injuries.
Our medical kits are customised to meet the exact requirements of a business – they can contain anything from snake venom extractors to defibrillators. Generally, they contain all sorts of bandages and dressings to help with injuries likely (or unlikely) to arise at the workplace. An incident report booklet is also included, as are thermal blankets, CPR face shields, and more.
At ESA Fire, we are devoted to what we do – we are fully accredited, fully passionate, and our equipment all goes above and beyond to comply with Australian standards.
