What is First Aid?
First Aid Nepal is a leading company in Nepal that deals with Fire Extinguishers' imports, distributions, and sales in Nepal. We also refill all the fire extinguishers in our extinguishers filling plants as per the manufacturer's guidelines, genuine chemicals, and original spare parts from different manufacturers.
Why are there so many types of fire extinguishers?
The simple answer to this question is that there are many types of Fires. Although fires can be put into some general category, you should know that if heated enough in the presence of oxygen, almost anything can start a fire. This includes even so-called non-flammable materials like sand, glass, and stone that can start a fire if they are heated enough.
With such a wide range of fire starters, it is natural for a wide range of fire extinguishers.
What are the Classes of Fire?
As we mentioned earlier, just about anything can cause a fire. However, under normal circumstances, sands don't catch fire, and people don't need to worry about their windows suddenly catching fire. That said, some everyday materials can cause a fire. The fire caused by these materials has been classified based on how they deal with them. You can check out our article about Fire extinguishers in Nepal for more information.
What are the different color codes on fire extinguishers?
The color codes of fire extinguishers label their types and are used to mark the type of fire they should be used on and their agent. The color codes and the agent they represent are:
- Red: Water
- Cream: Foam
- Blue: Dry Powder
- Black: Carbon dioxide
- Yellow: Wet Chemical
So note that there is a lot more fire extinguishing agents besides the ones specifically mentioned by the color codes. However, regardless of the change in specific agents, their function remains close to the ones mentioned.
Are there any fire extinguishers that can be used for all types of fires?
The simple answer is No! There are simply too many variables in a fire for one agent to cover them all. However, dry chemical fire extinguishers can be used in the majority of fire classes, except Class F fires.
Name the type of fire extinguisher each agent can be used in?
As we mentioned, there are no all-purpose fire extinguishers. However, each type of fire does have its own extinguisher. The fire extinguisher agents and the classes of flames they put out are:
- Dry Chemical Fire Extinguishers are putting out every type of fire except Class F fires.
- Foam Extinguishers are best for Class A and Class B type Fires
- Water can only be used for fires belonging to Class A
- Wet Chemicals should be used for Class A and Class F Fires
- Carbon Dioxide Fire extinguishers are best for Class B and Class E type flames.
Additionally, this also means that fire extinguishers have their class based on the type of fire they counter. This means that Dry Chemicals are essentially ABC-type fire extinguishers.

Are Our Fire Extinguishers Toxic?
The toxicity of fire extinguishers will entirely depend on the type of fire extinguisher you will be using. It is never a good idea to play with a fire extinguisher. It should be common sense not to inhale or put unknown things into your mouth.
Regardless, fire extinguishers are not toxic if used as intended. That being said, no one will blame the company if you spray foam or chemical fire extinguishers directly into your mouth.
Can water fire extinguishers be toxic?
Water fire extinguishers are not toxic. However, these extinguishers spray water at high pressure, so it is not a good idea to aim them at your mouth or body.
Are Dry Powder Fire Extinguishers Toxic?
Technically they are not toxic. They will not do your body any harm if you consume them through your mouth and all of them end up directly in your stomach. There might be a bit of indigestion, but that will be its end. However, if you inhale them, then they can clog up your air passages or, worse, enter your lungs and cause infections.
You should comply with the fire standards and use them as intended. If not, even if the fire extinguishers are non-toxic, they can harm you.
Do you need to follow Fire Safety on Roads?
Absolutely Yes! Although fires on roads are relatively uncommon, they can happen anytime. A small push of your vehicle or fuel can easily start a fire. The danger may be limited when we consider this a problem for a single vehicle, but considering that there are thousands of Vehicles on the road every waking second, the fire risk on roads is just as abundant as in any other place.
Why are Powder Fire Extinguishers Versatile?
The primary working mechanism of Powder Fire extinguishers is simple - they snuff out the oxygen of a fire. This is an extremely effective method of preventing killing a fire since fire cannot burn without oxygen. Unless the fire is based on facts that can soak through the powders, it can be used virtually everywhere.
