|Fire Fighting vehicle|
Firefighting is the act of attempting to stop the spread of and extinguish important unwelcome fires in houses, vehicles, forest, etc. A firefighter suppresses and extinguishes fires to safe lives and to stop the demolition of property and of the atmosphere. Firefighters may deliver other services to their public.
Firefighters normally suffer a high grade of technical training, in both common firefighting techniques and developing professional skill in particular fire and rescue actions, such as aircraft/airport rescue, forest fire suppression, and search and rescue.
One of the main dangers linked with firefighting operations could possibly be the toxic atmosphere created by explosive materials, the four main risks are smoke, oxygen deficiency, higher temperatures, and poisonous atmospheres Extra dangers include falls and structural collapse that can exacerbate the problems entailed in a toxic atmosphere. To struggle some of these risks, firefighters carry self-contained breathing equipment.
The first step in a firefighting action is reconnaissance to search for the origin of the fire, to identify the specific risks, and to locate possible losses.
