Fire Equipment

1.Fire Extinguishers

Most buildings contain a variety of hand-held firefighting equipment. This range of equipment is designed to help contain small fires before they spread and become too large to control. Portable fire extinguishers are available with a number of different extinguishing agents to help you combat a flame. A portable extinguisher may contain the following substance:

  • water
  • Foam
  • Dry powder
  • CO2
  • Wet chemical

2.Fire Blankets

Fire blankets are designed to smother class F fires. That means flame that is fuelled by cooking oils and fats. Naturally, fire blankets are installed in kitchen environments, where the chance of a class F fire is the highest.

3.Fire Hose Reels

Fire hose reels are ideal for extinguishing class A fires. That is fires that are fuelled by paper, rubber, wood, and other non-conductive materials. As fire hose reels discharge water, they cannot be used to combat electrical fires. There are other types of fire safety equipment designed to deal with electrical fires – namely C02 fire extinguishers.

4.Signage

All fire equipment should be accompanied by standard signage. This helps users identify the location and type of equipment they can access in an emergency. There is a range of different regulations when it comes to fire safety signage. Each piece of equipment is accompanied by an Australian standard for maintenance and installation. The corresponding guide will contain more information about signage and where it should be located.

6.First Aid Kits

Fire hose reels are ideal for extinguishing class A fires. That is fires that are fuelled by paper, rubber, wood, and other non-conductive materials. As fire hose reels discharge water, they cannot be used to combat electrical fires. There are other types of fire safety equipment designed to deal with electrical fires – namely C02 fire extinguishers.

7.Emergency & Exit Signs

Whilst firefighting equipment is important during an emergency when a flame is out of control, you need to evacuate a building. Emergency and exit signs will help to provide a clear path to an exit during a fire. Having clear signage and lighting will help contain panic and guide your team members to an appropriate exit in time. Emergency and exit lights need to be maintained according to the AS 2293:2005 (Set) standard for Emergency escape lighting and exit signs.

8.Smoke Alarms

Some types of fire safety equipment are designed for detection. Smoke alarms should be installed in all commercial and domestic buildings. If you are a landlord, the legislation for smoke alarm installation varies from state to state. You can find more information about your obligations on your state government website.
