The most common types of firefighting equipment that is placed in a building are fire extinguishers, fire hose reels, fire hydrant systems and automatic sprinkler systems. A fire extinguisher could be used to douse a small fire and the right type of extinguisher could be used to put out the fire while it’s small and controllable.
Fire hose reels could be used by the occupants of a building or by fire fighters. A fire hydrant system is a water reticulation system that is installed in buildings and helps fire fighters speed up the fire fighting process. The hydrant system transports water thus limiting the amount of hose the fire fighters have to lay in the event of a fire.
Automatic sprinkler systems are a reliable method to put out fires in a building. The sprinkler is connected to a pressurized water system. When the sprinkler head heats up, it opens, allowing the water to spray down on the fire.
