Industrial Fire Prevention Video and DVD Excerpt: Since the dawn of man fire has been a powerful tool. Allowing us to cook food, keep warm, and illuminate our surroundings. But throughout our history fire has also been a devastating destroyer. Even with modern firefighting techniques, accidental fires are still a leading cause of destruction disability and death. And today's fires are more dangerous than ever, because of plastics, chemicals, and other man made substances can cause fires to spread quickly, as well as spread toxic fumes. The best way to fight a fire is to prevent it. But first you must know what causes things to burn. All fires involve three elements, heat, fuel and oxygen. Removing any of these, will stop a fire. Let's look at each of them in great detail. Fires start with heat, which serves as a source of ignition. Heat can be generated by many things, including open flames, static electricity, cutting and welding operations, faulty electrical circuits, unshielded hot surfaces, friction and chemical reactions. Once a fire is burning it produces more heat and grows even larger. As long as there is enough fuel and oxygen a fire will continue to spread.
