Firefighting And The Fire Classifications

By Guest Author On May 27, 2011 No Comments

Within the world of firefighting, fire is classified under five classes. This gives a better system of understanding the many types of fire that fire personnel face each day. Each class of fire is fought differently and requires a different tactic and strategy for controlling it. Each classification of fire is listed under wither an A class, B class, C class, D class, or K class. In the United Kingdom, Class k fires are also known as Class F.

Class A fires are the fires that are more common in today’s world of firefighting. These fires are caused by combustible materials such as wood. More commonly known fires in this class are candle fires, campfires, fires resulting from a match ignition, and also lighter ignitions. A fire triangle is what causes these fires to remain hot and consist of heat, oxygen, and a fuel source.  A Class A fire requires all three to be at the right consistency or a fire can not continue. When the material becomes hot enough to cause combustion or an open flame usual.ly caused by a match or lighter, then the fire spreads to other materials around it. Oxygen is available to the flames and allows it to grow more and more dangerous. Campfires are usually a contained fire but with eh right ingredients such as a wind gust and surrounding brush, will leave the confines of the area and can spread through the forest at a fast rate. Firefighters know that with a Class A fire; the simplest way to put it out is by removing the oxygen and heat from the fire. Water is the common ingredient that does both. Some of the time a fire of this nature can be put out by using a chemical that will ultimately smother the fire.

Class B fires fall under the same fire triangle but gasoline and the like are the choice of fuel and not a wood product. Class B fires do not require the use of water and need a foam or CO2 based product to extinguish it. The K Class or F class as known to the United Kingdom is really a subheading under the B Class of fires. This class deals with the use of cooking oils as a source. Fire specially designed fire extinguishers are used for this. Class C fires are fires caused by electrical devices such as defective appliances. The fire triangle in this classification is fueled by the electrical current applied to it. Water can not be used under any circumstances because the firefighters are at risk of electrocution. Many firefighters have been killed by this type of fire and the electricity traveling up the path of the water to the hose. To fight a Class C fire, the oxygen part of the fire triangle must be cut off. Firefighters use foam consisting of protein and by removing the source of electricity from the fire. Fire extinguishers have been developed to also combat this class of fire.

Class D fires are known as fires dealing with metals. These metals may be in the form of magnesium, calcium, uranium, potassium, sodium, titanium, and plutonium. These metals themselves are not the main cause of the ignition but Class A fire is ignited causing the wood around it to heat to the metal. Magnesium and other metals are known to be very hot and can become as hot as 1200 degrees. Under no circumstances can these fires because the water will actually make the fire hotter. Dry powder is used to extinguish Class D fires and to smother the source of oxygen to the fire.

Decide Your Fate Today

By Guest Author On December 12, 2010 No Comments

Have you decided that it’s time for you to begin searching online for a romantic companion? An impressive profile is the most important feature necessary for a positive outcome with dating online. It is through your profile that the individuals of the online dating world get to know you. I’m sure that you are aware that the initial impact you have on someone is of great importance, and your profile acts as the initial impression in the online dating community. You should put together your profile deliberately and thoughtfully.

Let me start by saying that you DO need a profile picture. You can’t allow a few jitters to keep you from posting your picture along with your profile. Research indicates that profile owners who include a photograph stand a 75 percent greater chance of attracting interested browsers than those who omit their photo.

There’s no doubt that looks do play a part in a person’s interest in you. It is common for people to be reluctant to begin a potentially romantic relationship with a person they may not ultimately find physically appealing. Though we’d all like to believe that it’s a person’s personality that is the overriding factor and looks don’t matter, but deep down we all know that looks do matter. Most dating relationships are based at least in part in physical attraction, and those begun through online dating sites are no different.

Because the picture you use will be the first impression you make to potential dates, it is important to use great care and deliberation as you choose a photograph. The picture that you select needs to be current. The picture that appeared in your high school yearbook is not appropriate if you just turned 40. A profile photo needs to be no older than a year or two. You will want to be truthful and upfront with your information including your picture.

When someone looks at your profile photo, you want to feel confident that they are seeing the real, current you. If things go well you are going to want to move your online experience to the real world. You want the person to actually recognize you when they see you in person and not feel lied to or deceived.

Get A New Date Now

Here’s a question for you: Do you think that women enjoy dating a gentleman or is a man showing chivalry an insult to them?

What is chivalry? Dating back many centuries, chivalry is best known to have begun with the knighthood as a code of behavior followed by the mounted warriors giving them special status in the social system.

Times have changed, but most people would agree that chivalry means being respectful and polite, and having generally good manners and good treatment of people. A chivalrous man can be said to be honorable, helpful, kind and compassionate to people generally, but women in particular. In some cases, you can think of chivalry as a sort of romantic gesture; whether it be your man or another offering it up. However, there are many other ways a man can show chivalry without any romantic connections, instead they approach life with a code of honor that if followed makes a man a true gentleman.

Women’s rights and independence are very important, and being a strong, independent woman does not exclude you from being the beneficiary of chivalry and good deeds. People, both men and women, should understand that equality is not responsible for the lack of chivalry in today’s society, as well as the fact that wanting chivalry has nothing to do with weakness. In fact, many never make the connection that chivalry is an aspect of what makes up a great relationship. As a woman of independence, you may feel that chivalry might threaten it somehow, but in reality chivalry shouldn’t be thought of as so.

Carefully consider the manners and behavior of your dates to see if they are bringing enough to the table. Dating is the ritual of deciding whether someone fits your needs, as well as, you fitting theirs.

When considering the choice of man you connect with, be with, or even marry, you really should consider a gentleman. Being treated with respect will never get old, and this kind of man will really make you happy. A chivalrous man is someone who will enhance your self-esteem, because he will always treat you as you should, as a lady.

Before you seriously get going in online dating. The recession not only took a toll on individuals but many businesses. Dating Virtual If possible see how much of your criteria the person matches and see.
