Australian owned and operated fire safety company, FCF FIre and Electrical have created a simple online fire extinguisher guide for Australian businesses. They hope the guide will educate Australians about the various types of fires and fire extinguishers as Australia heads into another hot summer.

"There can be a lot of confusion about which type of fire extinguisher should be used in which situation." Says FCF general manager Jacob Foster. "We hope this guide will help Australian business owners, education facilities, industrial sites and the wider general public understand where to use which type of extinguisher."

In Australia there are 6 different types of fire extinguishers which can be installed in a building. The type of extinguisher that is installed depends on the class or types of fires hazards that exist within the building. Certain types of extinguishers will not work on certain fires and can even exsaerbate the situation. For example, water fire extinguishers should not be used on electrical fires. 

The guide includes a handy reference chart that can be downloaded for free. The chart is of print quality and allows people to quickly reference which fire extinguisher to use in which situation. The fire safety guide and downloadable chart can be accessed here:

Businesses are encouraged to also seek advice for their specific work environment from a qualified fire safety technician. FCF Fire and Electrical have technicians Australia wide and can provide onsite fire safety inspections, recommendations, fire safety training and fire safety equipnent.
