Fire Extinguishers

Postby Tralika » Sat Aug 12, 2017 12:17 pm

There was a discussion in a previous thread about an improvised firefighting system for the engine compartment. It reminded me of this video, "The Worst Fire Safety Demo Ever." I use this video when teaching a fire extinguisher class. All the participants must put out a fire to complete the class so it makes for a good safety moment before we light up. Lots of things can happen when you discharge a fire extinguisher, not all of them good. Enjoy.
