Abstract These two videotapes which are sequels to The fire extinguisher... Why?... How? (CIS 94-509) are aimed at all workers in an enterprise, with particular attention to those just hired and to fire-fighting crews. Tape 1 deals with extinguishing agents, concentrating on: fire classes A, B, C and D (liquid, solid, gas and metal fires); action, effectiveness and incompatibility of certain agents. Tape 2 deals with portable fire extinguishers (types, how to use, activation) and their distribution within the enterprise, as well as with pyrolysis products from flammable and non-flammable materials and with dust explosions.
