Water Extinguishers

Water Extinguishers

A water Extinguisher is an all red cylinder.

Water Fire Extinguishers are designed to extinguish Class A (Paper, textiles, wood, most plastics & rubber) fires.

Do not use water fire extinguishers for:

  • Electrical fires – this would be highly dangerous and could result in electrocution
  • Fires involving flammable liquids, such as petrol and paint (‘class B’ fires)
  • Fires involving flammable gases, such as methane and butane (‘class C’ fires)
  • Cooking fires involving oil and grease, such as chip pan fires (‘class F’ fires)
