A portable fire extinguisher is a "first aid" device and is very effective when used while the fire is small. The use of fire extinguisher that matches the class of fire, by a person who is well trained, can save both lives and property. Portable fire extinguishers must be installed in workplaces regardless of other firefighting measures. The successful performance of a fire extinguisher in a fire situation largely depends on its proper selection, inspection, maintenance, and distribution.
There are four different types of fires:
bulletType A - ordinary combustibles such as wood, cloth, paper, rubber and many plastics
bulletType B - flammable liquids, such as gasoline, oil, grease, tar, oil-based paint, lacquer, and flammable gas
bulletType C - energized electrical equipment, including wiring, fuse boxes, circuit breakers, machinery and appliances
bulletType D - combustible metals such as magnesium and potassium (uncommon)
