In case of FIRE
« on: December 22, 2017, 11:04:00 PM »


So, what kind of fire-fighting gear do you got at home?
I recently got an extinguisher gifted, which I think is the cutest thing ever. Should work on a fire up to 1 m^3 in size.

That is kind of cute in a steampunk way :)

Just old boring stuff here - normal sized fire extinguishers, fire blankets and some fire proof garbage bins.

That is super-cute  :salute:

I need two.........one for the car because driving around in the bush things can happen, and one for the workshop so my (attached) flat doesn't burn down with it  :facepalm:

I suddenly had a burning work table here the other day, and now I can proudly list sand and snow to my list of fire fighting remedies.

Hm. Somehow I think that if I brought that fire extinguisher in my check-in luggage there will be some people insisting on bringing me to the side and have a chat... Dang cute though!  :tu:

I have many fire extinguishers at home.  One specifically for the kitchen and even one in my vehicle.  I pack one in my camping gear as well.

Thanks for this, all. I need to get an extinguisher for my garage, if I'm out there throwing hot metal sparks with the dremel.

Also get a fire-blanket. That is cheaper and will work very well. You can even use it to prevent your sparks from flying into the barrel full of nitrogen triiodide

CO2  for the house, foam and powder for outside and for cars

Powder is very good, but leaves a total mess, so it is not ideal for use in the house.

CO2 is no use when there is wind but it is the cleanest

Hmmm. NI3 when dry is a contact explosive that will detonate at a harsh look.  :ahhh :ahhh :ahhh

Put some wet into a key hole. When it dries... >:D

We once made it in chemistry class... and while it was drying the class got up from their chairs to go check out another experiment... booomm (well more like... zischhhhhhhh as it was not in a container). Really sensitive, but most fun.
