BC Dry powder fire extinguishers

BC Dry powder fire extinguishers are suitable for use on fires involving flammable liquids and also fires involving live electrical appliances, or appliances which have been recently energised. They are also suitable for use on fires involving flammable gases, however, great care must be taken as gas escaping following the extinguishing of a flame can often be more dangerous than a burning gas, due to the risk of explosion.

Great care must be taken when positioning fire extinguishers containing dry powder. See note on ABC Dry powder fire extinguishers here.

BC dry powder fire extinguishers are always red in colour with a blue band. Occasionally you may come across a very old model, which will not be red, but completely blue in colour.
