Fires of solids, the burning of which is accompanied by glowig (eg wood, paper, straw, coal, rubber, textiles, etc.)
We direct the stream of extinguishing agent to the center of the burning object, maintain a suitable distance and make sure that the extinguishing agent evenly covers the burning object.
Fires of liquids or substances turning into liquids (eg petrol, oil, paints, alcohol, wax, etc.)
When extinguishing liquid fires, it is necessary to avoid mixing and blasting of the liquid by the pressure of the applied extinguishing agent, which can result in a doubling of the volume of the flames.
Fires of cooking oils and fats (vegetable or animal oils and fats)
When extinguishing cooking oils and fats, it is necessary to avoid splashing burning oil into the surrounding area after the impact of the fire extinguisher stream, this could lead to the spread of fire.
If possible, it is advisable to apply the extinguishing agent indirectly to the fire, but to direct it, for example, to the wall of the container so that the foamed extinguishing mixture flows down to the surface of the burning oil. The recommended distance of the intervening person should be about 2 m.
Fires in live electrical equipment.
Electrical equipment with a voltage of up to 1000 V can be extinguished from a distance of at least 1 meter (includes standard household appliances with a voltage of 230 or 400 V).
Note: Always carry out firefighting in the direction of the wind and extinguish the burning surface from the edge.
In case of danger of uncontrolled spread of fire, it is necessary to immediately contact the Fire and Rescue Service of the Czech Republic on the telephone line 150 or call the European emergency number 112.
